2011 Côtes du Rhône Villages, Plan de Dieu, Le Temps Est Venu, Dom Ogier

Cotes du Rhone Villages, Plan de Dieu, Le Temps Est Venu, Dom Ogier
The clue is in the name…..the time has come for the master of Côte Rôtie to have a go at making a wine from the South of the Valley. Perfectionism being his watch-word, Stéphane has researched extensively before selecting a partner in the newly promoted ‘village’ of Plan de Dieu. I use the inverted comma because the appellation is not actually a village, merely a scenic limestone plateau, basking in the shadow of the Dentelles de Montmirail  and traditionally source of some  fine old-vine Grenache.

Stéphane’s example is exceptional. The blend is 90% Grenache, with 10% shared between Syrah and Mourvèdre. It has been matured for a year in concrete vats. Rich, spicy and over-flowing with dark fruit personality, this is a delightful example which, despite its weight and power, does not want for Stéphane’s famously elegant style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by An amazing rapport prix/qualite This is an excellent wine for the money. Clearly, Stephane has successfully transferred his highly-developed skills from the north to the south of the Rhone valley. I would recommend this wine to those who enjoy a full, red fruit-based wine with a subtle finish of spice and fig. 08 January 2014
