This famed appellation got its name in the middle ages, as the windswept plain was so remote and forbidding that travelers put themselves in God’s hand when they traversed it. Today, it is recognized as a superior Cotes-du-Rhone Villages, producing wines often comparable to Gigondas below it.


This old-vine version from Saint-Damien is just tremendous. The Wine Advocate rates it outstanding – above both the 2015 Plan de Dieu and the 2015 old-vine Gigondas cuvee (at $45). They say:


Utilizing the same 80-20 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre favored in many of the estate's wines, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes offers hints of garrigue interlaced among ripe black cherries. It's full-bodied, lush, drink-now stuff, despite having a bit of tannin on the finish.
