description_recompenses
2019, with its very unique climate, offers us once again a great vintage. Thanks to the favorable temperatures of February/March and the important water reserves generated by the heavy rains of autumn 2018, the vineyard resisted well to the heat and drought of the summer. The month of September, with its warm, sunny days and cool nights, allowed the grape bunches to develop harmoniously. At the time of harvest, the grapes were ripe and healthy. The quality of the vintage is exceptional, with red wines offering intense, ripe red-fruit aromas and round yet fresh flavours.

Tasting notes: 

"Cotes Du Rhône Villages Plan De Dieu Saint-Mapalis has loads of potential. Revealing a healthy, vivid purple color as well as a big nose of Bing cherry, blueberries, peppery garrigue, and licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, an expansive, opulent mouthfeel, no hard edges, and just loads of Provençal charm." Jeb Dunnuck, october 2020
