Cotes du Rhone Villages AOC Plan de Dieu
Grenache Based Blend

Top critic Robert Parker has called the Rhône Valley’s reds “the most underrated great wines of the world.” Sporting a history of gold-medal acclaim, the top-shelf Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages is your perfect taste.

The Meffre family has crafted world-class wines since 1550. From their estate in Plan de Dieu (one of just 20 first-rate villages permitted to append its name to ‘Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages’ on the bottle label), this gem brings together Rhône stars Grenache and Syrah. These are the same varieties that make sought-after Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the village just north of Plan de Dieu – you’ll just enjoy them at a much friendlier price.

Drawing on his family’s 460-plus years of winemaking know-how, Hugues Meffre picked only the ripest, old-vine grapes for his 2017 release. In the glass, look forward to layers of ripe berry and cherry, lifted by cool wild-herb and peppery spice notes.

Concentrated and complex, this is made for sipping like a Rhône local, with hearty game dishes or lentil-based casseroles. Limited cases imported. Order now.
