Winemaking
Located to the East of the southern the town of Orange, Plan de Dieu is an extensive alluvium terraced terroir, which spans between the rivers Aigues and Ouvèze. There, the soils are rich in limestone cobbles dating from the Quaternary Period. These deposits lie alternatively upon blue clay and gravelly cobalt oxide. The fact that Plan de Dieu directly faces the mistral wind provides excellent climate conditions to the vineyard. Moreover, optimal sunshine enables excellent ripeness. Syrah and Grenache varieties are vinified the traditional way in a controlled-temperature environment. The maceration lasts two weeks.

Tasting Note
Intense coloured, dark red wine with mauve reflections, which releases generous berry and spice flavours. A few hints of scrubland flower scents complete this harmonious combination. The texture of this wine is pleasant, structured and round on the palate. The tannins are smooth and offer a beautiful fruity persistence.

Serving Suggestion
Served at a 17-18°C temperature, this wine will wonderfully match Mediterranean cuisine, such as ratatouille, stuffed vegetables or tagines.
