Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages "Saint Mapalis" 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

The 2015 Plan de Dieu (St. Mapalis) from Meffre is even better than the previous vintage with a sage-infused cherry nose and gritty, wild cherry on the palate. Slightly rustic and invigorating, this wine makes for exceptional value. 89 points+ And, as I am not often wont to say, "a steal"...

The 2014 Saint Mapalis from the windswept flatland of Plan de Dieu (God's Plan, or Plane of God) near Cairanne is excellent. There is the candied blueberry nose with a touch of sagebrush (well, maybe garrigue) and there is a clean, blueberry-infused, metallic entry without harshness or heavy tannin. It lacks only the density of the best villages. Finish is medium and flavours are perhaps less complex than village named wine, but a very good wine nonetheless. 89 points.

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.
