Domaine des Pasquiers Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu 2018
An exquisite Rhone red, packed with fruit and a real depth of flavour.
Deep red in colour, the nose is full of baked cherries, plums and hints of thyme. Full bodied and packed with fruit and a real depth of flavour on the palate, combined with tannins providing excellent structure followed by a mineral freshness on the finish.
Located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Domaine des Pasquiers is passed from father to son since 1935. This 87 hectare property owned by the Lambert family for three generations, covers the appellations Côtes du Rhone, Côtes du Rhône Sablet, Côtes du Rhône Plan de Dieu and Gigondas. The Plan De Dieu (Plan of God) terroir is spread over a bed of Pliocene clay covered with rolled pebbles offering the vines of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan rich and concentrated juices.
