The value for money is staggering and when you taste the depth of fruit and breathe in the heavenly perfume of this wild, red-fruited wine your senses will be in orbit. The texture is mesmerising because it is silky smooth and the finish is prickles with refreshing spice and earth notes.

Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail (January 2020)

Brilliant value. Aromas of ripe black- and red- berry fruit are overlaid with whispers of violet, white pepper and liquorice. A lip smacking, juicy palette is balanced by mineral freshness and chalky tannins.
Tina Gellie, Decanter (January 2020)

Make time this winter to tuck into Berry’s top drawer own-label wines, including this dazzling biodynamic red from Visan, close to Orange in the southern Rhône. From a leading domaine and good vintage, it’s crammed with rich, sweet, damson plum fruit and a spark of spice.
Jane MacQuitty, The 50 best red wines for winter, The Times (November 2020)


Berry Bros & Rudd’s own-label claret is the wine everyone knows but for my money this is a much better bet – a very suave Côtes du Rhône that mingles notes of white stone with fruit and a gently suedey texture.
Victoria Moore, The best red wines to buy for Christmas 2020, The Daily Telegraph (November 2020)

Bags of fresh, lightly peppered blackberries, a good candidate for roast turkey and side dishes.

Talented winemaker and owner of Domaine Dieu-le-Fit, Rémi Pouizin, is the man behind our delicious Côtes du Rhône. Made exclusively from organic grapes, the 2019 vintage is alluringly juicy and concentrated. On the nose, notes of ripe red and black berry fruit combine with hints of liquorice, rosemary and tapenade. The wine’s acidity provides a real juiciness, generously supported by chalky tannins – making this a brilliant match for all sorts of foods.

About this WINE

Remi Pouizin

Remi Pouizin

Rémi and Geraldine Pouizin of Domaine Dieu-le-Fit are at the top of their game. Demeter accredited from 2016, we are delighted to be working with them for our Own Selection Côtes du Rhône. Rémi inherited most of his vineyards from the property known as Fourmente, where he built his own winery. Their wines are given branded names as they are essentially assembled from different plots. Red clay and pudding stones are at the lower altitudes, then “saffre” (sandstone) is just above the village itself. The more varied garrigue-strewn soils sit on the plateau heading in the direction of Rasteau.

Working organically is part of Rémi’s family philosophy; his grandparents grew fruit and vegetables organically in the 1960s. Rémi insists, “If I can drink a product, I am happy to put it on my vines. If it would be poisonous to me, it doesn’t go anywhere near them.” Clearly, there is honesty and integrity in everything the couple does.

Côtes du Rhône

Côtes du Rhône

Côtes du Rhône, located in southern France’s Rhône Valley, is one of the country’s largest and most well-known wine appellations. The region is renowned for producing a wide range of high-quality wines, with vineyards extending from just south of Lyon in the north to Avignon in the south, covering both banks of the Rhône River.

Côtes du Rhône is celebrated for its wide array of red and white grape varieties. The primary red grape varieties include Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, while the main white grape varieties consist of Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne.

The region is divided into several appellations, each with distinct characteristics and regulations. The hierarchy ranges from the broad Côtes du Rhône appellation to more specific and prestigious sub-appellations like Côtes du Rhône Villages and Crus such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, and Hermitage.

The region benefits from a diverse terroir, contributing to the different wine styles. The northern part has a continental climate, while the southern portion enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which plays a vital role in grape ripening and flavour development.

The red wines are highly regarded for their rich and robust flavours. They often exhibit notes of dark fruits, herbs, spices, and distinctive peppery quality, especially in the Syrah-dominated wines from the northern Rhône.

The white wines are typically aromatic and elegant, with flavours of stone fruits, floral notes, and hints of mineral complexity.

Côtes du Rhône also produces excellent rosé wines, which are refreshing and perfect for warm weather enjoyment.

Winemaking in Côtes du Rhône has a long history from ancient times. The region preserves a combination of traditional methods and modern techniques, allowing winemakers to express the unique characteristics of their terroir.

Côtes du Rhône wines are versatile and pair well with a wide range of dishes, including roasted meats, hearty stews, grilled vegetables, and cheeses.

Southern Rhône Blend

Southern Rhône Blend

The vast majority of wines from the Southern Rhône are blends. There are 5 main black varieties, although others are used and the most famous wine of the region, Châteauneuf du Pape, can be made from as many as 13 different varieties. Grenache is the most important grape in the southern Rhône - it contributes alcohol, warmth and gentle juicy fruit and is an ideal base wine in the blend. Plantings of Syrah in the southern Rhône have risen dramatically in the last decade and it is an increasingly important component in blends. It rarely attains the heights that it does in the North but adds colour, backbone, tannins and soft ripe fruit to the blend.

The much-maligned Carignan has been on the retreat recently but is still included in many blends - the best old vines can add colour, body and spicy fruits. Cinsault is also backtracking but, if yields are restricted, can produce moderately well-coloured wines adding pleasant-light fruit to red and rosé blends. Finally, Mourvèdre, a grape from Bandol on the Mediterranean coast, has recently become an increasingly significant component of Southern Rhône blends - it often struggles to ripen fully but can add acidity, ripe spicy berry fruits and hints of tobacco to blends.
