"I think unquestionably the greatest vintage for this cuvée to date is the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Calendal. Coming from well know Oenologist Philippe Cambie’s own label and a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre, it offers a refined, beautifully pure bouquet of black raspberries, cassis, crushed flowers, and spice. Full-bodied, elegant and silky, with a level of polish and elegance lacking in prior vintages, it has integrated acidity (a hallmark of the vintage), ripe tannin and a blockbuster finish. It’s already hard to resist, but it going to continue dishing out loads of pleasure for at least a decade."
