Once again, the Plan de Dieu Appellation proves its regularity. It did withstand climatic variations without difficulty. Neither the spring drought - which lasted throughout the summer - nor the high temperatures of July and August affected the quality of the vintage. Quite contrarily, they led to the production of very fine wines.
The clement weather that prevailed during harvest, with mild and dry conditions (except for three small inconsequential rains) also contributed to this quality by allowing the grapes to be harvested serenely, at optimum ripeness.
The 2020 vintage turns out to be colourful and well-structured, with plump tannins and very good balance.
The nose displays typical black fruit aromas with hints of blackcurrant and blackberry. Compared to 2019, the vintage is slightly less tannic on the palate, but instead provides a great deal of finesse.
Though it is ready to drink as of now, Plan de Dieu 2020 certainly offers promising ageing potential.
The homogenous terroir and abundant rolled pebbles contribute to wines that live up to their reputation year after year thanks to their constant quality and distinctive typicity.
