Calendal 2012 Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages Rhone Valley ($26.00) (Red) Rating: 92  ( RP )
The finest wine yet produced by proprietor Philippe Cambie and his partner, Gilles Ferran, this blend of equal parts Mourvèdre and Grenache aged 12 months in one-year-old barrels comes from vines in the charming yet spiritual name of Plan de Dieu (Plan of God). Sadly, there are only 450 cases of this beauty, which boasts terrific richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel and copious quantities of black raspberries, black currants, licorice, Provençal herbs and pepper. It is a seriously endowed, full-throttle, velvety textured Côtes du Rhône-Villages to drink over the next 3-4 years.
