On Sunday in The Independent Terry Kirby wrote up one of our favourite everyday drinking wines from the Rhone Valley, Domaine de l’Espigouette Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Villages 2009.
Here is his note: “Plan de Dieu is a relatively new appellation in the Southern Rhone , close to the superstar areas of Gigondas and Vacqueyras. This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre shares many of their esteemed qualities – herby aromas, rich and concentrated flavour on the palate, with a spicy finish – but at a slightly more sensible price. Very good with any tomato-based Mediterranean dishes or grilled lamb.”
