Cotes du Rhone-Villages AOC
Grenache Based Blend

This classic Rhône red is from René Bessac, who has carefully tended the vines at his small, family owned estate for 30 years, and is now assisted by his son. His vines are spread over one of the southern Rhône's noblest areas, the Plan de Dieu - so named because the vineyards were established by religious communities in the Middle Ages, under the protectorship of the legendary Knights Templar. The area is strewn with the same large pebbles - galets roulés - that you'll find in Châteauneuf du Pape and produces some of the most stunning (and affordable) Rhône wines you're likely to find.From a top vintage, probably the best for 25 years, this classic Rhône red is ideal with herby sausages and Parmesan mash, lamb chops or a rich hot pot.
