Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Villages "Saint-mapalis" 2012

Member Review by zufrieden:

This regular Southern Rhone offering has an excellent sweet cherry nose exuding the essence of Grenache; on the palate, there is more of the same with withering red fruit flavors, some stem-like acerbity and soft tannin on the finish. This is slightly above the usual café style in (say) Gigondas. 85 points.
