Domaine Saint-Damien 2018 Plan De Dieu Vieilles Vignes
Southern Rhone Valley France
Jeb Dunnuck 90-92 Rating
Coming from the sea of vines located in the pebbly soils between Vacqueyras and Cairanne, the 2018 Plan De Dieu Vieilles Vignes offers more blue fruits, flowers incense, and peppery aromas and flavors. An 80/20 split of Grenache and Mourvèdre brought up in tank, it’s medium to full-bodied, has light tannins, no hard edges, and is a pleasure-bent, character-filled 2018 that’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate.
