2020 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes
80% Grenache (1948), 20% Mourvèdre (2010). This wine is sourced from the lower terraced parcels of the Plan de Dieu lieu-dit, in the commune of Violès. The Grenache vines are over 70 years old and come from two sites, one planted on red clay and the other on galets (smooth river-worn pebbles). The younger Mourvèdre vines are planted on sandy soil. The wine is fermented for 30 days in concrete vats, then matured for 10 months in a mix of concrete tanks and large old 50 hL oak foudres. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration.
The old vine bottling of Plan de Dieu from Joel and Romain Saurel is composed of a blend of eighty percent grenache (vines planted in 1949) and twenty percent mourvèdre (vines planted in 1978). The grapes are co-fermented in cement vats and aged in the same for eight months prior to bottling. To my palate, this is a baby Gigondas and is a superb value!” John Gilman, View from the Cellar
”The 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Plan De Dieu Vieilles Vignes offers darker cherry and blackberry-like fruits as well as textbook Southern Rhône pepper, garrigue, and spice. It’s ripe, seamless, and undeniably delicious.” (89-92) points, Jeb Dunnuck, January 2022
