Overview

A new parcel for Château du Mourre de Tendre, and first made in 2015, is their Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu. This wine is made from vines between 70 and 90 years old and is a blend of primarily Grenache with Mourvedre and Cinsault. While Plan de Dieu is not widely known outside of the southern Rhône, this terroir is getting more and more attention due to its resemblance to many of the famed lieu dits located in southern portion of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (We’re thinking of you Le Crau!) – a terroir of red clay and galets over sand.
