Cotes du Rhone, Dom de la Berthete 2021


Tasting Note

From the middle ages vines have been grown on the Plaine du Plan de Dieu in the heart of the southern Rhone. Back then you were taking your life in your hands crossing the plain as it was very much bandit country – hence whether you survived was dependent on God’s plan! Pascal Maillet is kind of “living the dream.” No winemaking background and only a degree in computer science to guide him, together with his wife, Marie-Pierre, they bought this traditional estate in 1993 and threw themselves into it. Classic southern Rhone – Grenache/Syrah blend with various other usual suspects playing support, it’s got layers of red fruit, spice and garrigue herbs in abundance; not shiny or polished, just gutsy and satisfying.
