Opaque black dark crimson red colour with deep crimson purple hue. Perfumed aromas of black raspberry and blackberry followed by some liquorice, spice and meaty end notes. Full bodied, concentrated and ripe the palate displays flavours of blackberry, liquorice and black cherry with some spicy dried meat characters on the back palate. Fine grained, slightly dryish but perfectly balanced tannin structure. Superb depth with long aftertaste of blackberry, liquorice, dried meat and blackpepper.

Other Reviews….
This is the personal project of brilliant winemaking consultant, Philippe Cambie, and his partner, Gilles Ferran. One of my favorite value choices over recent vintages, the 2009 Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone-Villages looks to be sensational, perhaps even eclipsing the 2007 in terms of intensity, richness, and power. A blend of equal parts Grenache and Mourvedre from very old, organically farmed vines, the wine is aged in neutral wood prior to being bottled unfiltered. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of boysenberries, pepper, incense, and fruit. Full-bodied with a lush, opulent texture, superb purity and depth, and abundant power and richness, it is a big (15+% alcohol) as well as rich, pure, elegant red that should be consumed over the next 2-4 years.
