Plan de Dieu Red

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway.
In 2006, the familly Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

"USA - VINTAGE : 2015
A blend of Grenache and Syrah matured in a mix of tanks and barrels, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone villages Plan de Dieu is a full-bodied wine loaded with scents of brandied cherries and even apricot. It's supple and creamy and shows those exotic notes without any trace of heat while remaining lively and fresh on the long finish

"VINTAGE 2015 - The 2015 Château du Trignon Côtes-du-Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu begins with lots of woodsy notes on the nose – it smells wonderful, a bit like a barrel room. You’ll also find some pleasing aromas of blackberry and apple plus a little black pepper and spice. The wine tastes smooth, round and soft in the mouth with lots of sweet, fleshy fruit along with licorice, nice herbal touches and spice. The fruit turns a bit tart on the dry, slightly grippy finish of this medium-bodied, easy drinking wine. Lingering touches of apple, berry and spice hang around for a while. Wonderful!" [+]

"VINTAGE 2015 - De Famille Quiot wordt vaak in één adem genoemd met het zuidelijke Rhône-gebied en is eigenaar van meerdere wijn-gaarden in de belangrijke “villages” als Vacqueyras, Gigondas en Châteauneuf du Pape. Maar de familie bezit ook het prachtige wijnhuis Domaine Houchart in de Provence bestemd voor de productie van rosé. Maar we hebben het nu over een mooie rode, afkomstig uit Plan de Dieu, een appellatie die behoort tot de Côtes du Rhône Villages. Een stevige, robijnrode wijn met tonen van blauwe bessen die gepaard gaan met een lange afdronk. Lekker bij Provençaalse stoofschhotels.

(English) The Famille Quiot is often mentioned in the same breath as the southern Rhône region and is the owner of several vineyards in the important villages such as Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Pape. But the family also owns the beautiful winery Domaine Houchart in Provence intended for the production of rosé. But we are now talking about a beautiful red, from Plan de Dieu, an appellation that belongs to the Côtes du Rhône Villages. A sturdy, ruby red wine with hints of blueberries accompanied by a long finish. Serve with Provencal stew dishes.
