Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu, Domaine Le Renard
Glossy, Intense colour, almost black. Complex notes of black fruit with spicy black pepper. The Palate is concentrated, but with lovely purity and silky texture. The tannins are fine and precise and a bright fresh acidity brings finesse and balance. Impressive length with a delicious line of minerality
“2015 … a very, very good vintage for the entire Southern Rhône Valley… a beautiful vintage for Southern Rhône lovers that will be a treasure trove for the actual wine drinkers out there.” Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016
Domaine le Renard is a family estate at the foot of the dentelles de Montmiral, run by Marie-Christine Andrieu who took over 6 hectares from her father in 1986. Since then, with her partner Pascal Valadier, she has increased the estate to 65 hectares. Their philosophy of low yields and old vines deliver grapes of concentration and complexity which are carefully handled to produce powerful and beautifully balanced wines.
