SKU #1441540 90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Blackberries, currants, Asian spice, and licorice notes all emerge from the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Plan De Dieu, and it's a fleshy, nicely textured, balanced red. The blend is 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah brought up all in concrete tanks. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years.  (8/2019)

Wine Spectator

 Charming, with a stream of cherry and red currant fruit carried by light sandalwood and tobacco accents. Drink now through 2020. (JM, Web Only-2019)

Ferraton is best known for their Northern Rhone efforts but they make some pretty spectacular Southern Rhones as well. This Plan de Dieu is truly one of the great standouts. More old-school with its brambly red fruit, potpourri and dusty spices. Providing weight, richness and elegance, this is many a staff members' favorite classically styled Cotes du Rhone, especially my own!

I've always had a fondness to Plan de Dieu, and this special cotes du rhone villages from Ferraton is beyond exceptional. Rustic, full bodied yet an easy drinker. Perfect for any dinner party, this wine is a true crowd pleaser. Buy a case or two.

The Ferraton Cotes du Rhone is yet another outstanding addition to an increasing number of value priced Southern French wines currently available at K&L. It opens to heady aromas of spiced dark berry fruits, dark plum, licorice and pepper and delivers a rounded palate of delicious black fruit. While the Grenache shines through the Syrah truly harmonizes this terrific new release.

New in stock and quite possibly my new favorite Southern Rhône value. This has distinct aromas of licorice, dried plums and violets, and the palate displays raspberry compote, dried figs, baking spice and a hint of smoked meat and savory elements. Tannins are present but gentle and the length persists. There is a lot going on here for a mere $14.99! Enjoy with grilled meats while the weather is still warm, and with cozy, beef stews when the weather turns cooler.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
