Romain Duvernay Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu 2017

Looking for a crowd pleaser for the dinner table tonight? This GSM blend from the Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu could be just the ticket. The 2017 from Romain Duvernay grabbed our eye as being from a Grenache dominated, and relatively new (in the grand scheme of French wine history!!) appellation in the Rhone Valley, named after the plains the vines are planted on. Its easy drinking, with notes of black and red fruit, a touch of gaminess and a hint of pepper. It'll pair well with almost anything, so grab a case and enjoy.

Romain Duvenay is a talented oenologist who has worked in Bordeaux, Languedoc and Burgundy, but ended up in the Rhône Valley after having fallen in love with the terroir and iconic grape varieties (Grenache , Syrah and Mourvedre).
