I was blown away by the quality of this domaine's 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu, an assemblage of 60% Grenache with 20% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, all matured in foudres. It kicks off with enticing aromas of trilled plums, crushed stone and cracked pepper, then eases into rich, velvety waves of fruit on the full-bodied palate. It's velvety and super ripe, yet it's also savory and long on the finish, just a terrific effort for drinking over the next 4-5 years.

Luscious black cherry and cassis are muted by savory tones of earth, toast and cinnamon in this plush, richly concentrated red. It's a juicy, piquant wine marked by spicy touches of anise, cardamom and dried rose petal that linger through a long finish. An immediately approachable wine, it should hold well through 2024.
