This relatively new appellation, created in 2005, covers a surface area of about 2619 acres. The name Plan de Dieu comes from the plain (plan, in French) on which these villages are located and where many of the appellation's best grape growing sites are to be found.
The grapes are destemmed according to tradition then fermented under controlled temperatures of approximately 24°C. Some pumping over is performed to encourage the gentle extraction of colours, aromas and flavours. Ageing: 100% in tanks for 10 months to preserve the fresh fruit flavours and soften the tannins through sparing use of micro-oxygenation.
Combination of small red undergrowth fruits (strawberry, blackcurrant, raspberry) and a sweet spicy.
A supple, round attack, the finish is redolent of black fruit associated with light spices such as cinnamon and vanilla. The supple, melting tannins give this wine fullness and body in the mouth.
