The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu De Pere en Filles is a full-bodied, open-knit blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. Hints of alfalfa appear on the nose, while the flavors trend more toward plummy black cherries. Rich and ripe yet easy to drink, it finishes with mouthwatering length.

Where It's From

Region / Rhone

View more wines from Rhone

Located along the path of the Rhone River, the Rhone wine region in southeastern France is beautiful and very productive. It's typically divided into two sub-regions, the Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone, and the wines produced in these sub-regions are very different from one another.

The southern Rhone is warm and dry, and produces robust, full-flavored red wines, oftentimes blends with Grenache used as the primary grape. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is without question the most celebrated town for wine production in the Southern Rhone region.

Meanwhile, the Northern Rhone features a cooler climate and steep-sloped vineyards. Syrah is the dominant red grape, and the wines are typically tannic, deeply colored, and highly acidic wines (which leads them to get better with age).

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Lavish yet impeccably light on its feet, this Muscat vin doux naturel offers intensely ripe, concentrated tangerine and honeysuckle notes offset by whiffs of fresh, green herb. It’s a silky, sweet wine anchored by a lingering thread of minerality and integrated alcohol. Enjoy now–2024.

Lightly firm, with singed juniper lending a taut feel along the edges of the dried plum, steeped cherry and cinnamon notes that form the core. A taut, woodsy hint hangs on the finish. Drink now. 150 cases imported.

A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Cinsault and 10% Syrah, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Parallele 45 Rose comes across as significantly less tutti-frutti than some past vintages, instead offering hints of dried spices and crushed stone. It still shows redmberry flavors and some peachy notes, but this medium-bodied wine finishes with sufficient citrusy acids to be refreshing.

Bright violet. Powerful black and blue fruit preserve, spicecake and incense aromas are lifted and sharpened by a strong, smoky mineral nuance. Stains the palate with concentrated, smoke-tinged boysenberry, cherry liqueur and five-spice flavors that become more energetic with air. Shows suave, seamless texture and finishes extremely long and sappy; chewy tannins build slowly and frame the intense dark fruit.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2017
The 2015 Saint Joseph Domaine de la Croix des Vignes is more tannic than the 2016 but not better. Dry cedary notes frame cherry fruit in the medium to full-bodied wine that will require a couple of years in the cellar to show its best.

Dark and spicy with some wet-earth and violet notes, this is a rich and well-structured Cotes-du-Rhone Villages, in which the black fruit is well married to bold yet supple tannins. Long finish with a certain firmness that suggests this will benefit from some years of further bottle age. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

Bright violet. Smoky dark berries and licorice on the nose and palate. Taut black currant and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and turn deeper and sweeter with air. A floral nuance emerges slowly on the finish, which clings with strong tenacity and a trace of fine-grained tannins.

Direct, with a proper core of plum and cassis fruit notes lined with light bay and tobacco hints, ending with a dose of toast that leaves a slightly pinched finish. Drink now through 2017. 125 cases imported.

RP97+97+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2014
The grand vin is the 2012 Hermitage la Chapelle, and it lives up to the billing in 2012. Coming mostly from the Meal and aged in just 20% new French oak, it’s a blockbuster that exhibits thrilling, mineral-drenched notes of spiced dark fruits, beef blood, black olive and toast. Full-bodied, deep, layered and incredibly concentrated, it has a stacked mid-palate and enough tannin to warrant another 4–5 years of bottle age. It will have 2–3 decades of overall prime drinking, and certainly evolve for longer.
ST94+94–96 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Mar/Apr 2014
Dark purple. A heady, expansive bouquet evokes candied black and blue fruits, incense, violet and smoky minerals. Lush, palate-staining cassis and blueberry flavors show excellent clarity and vivacity for their power thanks to juicy acidity and a touch of peppery spices. Closes sweet, sappy, broad and extremely long, with smooth tannins coming on late.

A whiff of violet introduces ripe but pristine blackberries and cherries in this fleshy but delightful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s sleek and silky on the palate yet anchored by firm granite tones and fine, taut tannins that reverberate through an extended finish. Irresistible already it is likely to gain finesse and depth well through 2035.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2020
Densely fruited, with layers of red currant, raspberry and plum fruit paste flavors that stretch out slowly, unveiling notes of cedar, garrigue, brick dust and incense. A warm stone detail drives the finish, accented by well-buried acidity that keeps all the elements fresh and defined within the old-school rubric. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2036. 3,700 cases made, 800 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, August 29, 2018
Mellow, rich aromas of red fruit and berry pastry with garrigue, raspberry liqueur and sweet, berry cream. The palate has a suave, long and succulent core of powerful tannins. Long and dense. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/28/2018
A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in a mix of stainless steel and old barrels, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Clos du Roi is a ripe, sexy wine. Dried cherries, blackberries, loamy soil, and hints of cured meats give way to a rounded, supple, elegant 2016 that has moderate tannin and good length. Drink it over the coming decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit scents are complicated by suggestions of garrigue, licorice and white pepper. Spicy and focused on the palate, displaying vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors along with a building smoky nuance. Finishes with resonating spiciness, a suggestion of Chambord and youthfully chewy tannins.

JD9999 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 28, 2018
One of the gems in the vintage is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, and it’s about as beautiful an example of old vine Grenache as I could imagine. Sporting a deep purple color as well as a huge perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, garrigue, crushed flowers, and exotic spices, it hits the palate with a wealth of fruit, a stacked mid-palate, awesome purity of fruit, and a finish that won’t quit. Made from 100% old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit, aged in one-third new barrels, it has a certain accessibility even today but will be at its best in 2–4 years and keep for 15+. It’s the finest wine ever made by Baptiste and readers need to find bottles of this elixir! (Jeb Dunnuck)
JD96+96–99 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 19, 2017
Even better (although in a very different style), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes comes all from very old Grenache vines planted all in sandy soils. This behemoth offers awesome notes of blueberries, plums, violets and spring flowers, with hints of sandy/loamy/soil notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied, fat, unctuous and hedonistic, it stays balanced lively and fresh on the palate, with no weight. Sign me up. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
Ripe, but bright and fresh, with a lively mix of raspberry, red currant and bitter plum coulis flavors streaming in, pulling light tea, singed sandalwood and anise notes along. Shows lovely detail and well-embedded acidity through the finish. Drink now through 2035. 600 cases made, 150 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The pure Grenache 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes reached 16.5% alcohol yet carries it really well, showing just a trace of warmth. Cola, cedar and black cherry notes lead into a plush, full-bodied wine with supple tannins and remarkable length. Although it may age past a decade, there’s no real reason to defer gratification.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Limpid ruby-red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry liqueur, Chambord and candied flowers, along with a subtle floral quality that gains strength with air. Energetic red berry and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by mocha and licorice flourishes that take a sweeter turn on the back half. Youthful tannins lend grip to a long, focused finish that strongly echoes the cherry and floral notes.
RP94+94–96 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
I didn’t taste the straight Chateauneuf du Pape from 2016, but the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes certainly looked special out of a one-year-old demi-muid. It’s a big, plush, dark-fruited wine, with some chocolate notes and a velvety feel.

Enticing, with bright, engaging raspberry, cherry and red currant fruit infused with gently roasted sandalwood and apple wood, garrigue and licorice root notes. A swath of tobacco underscores the finish, giving this an old-school hint. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,500 cases made, 550 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Made from 50- to 80-year-old vines, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape offers tremendous purity for an entry-level cuvée. Pine and rosemary notes accent bright cherry fruit in this full-bodied, creamy textured and lush example of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The assemblage is 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Enjoy it over the next decade.

JD9393 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 19, 2017
A new cuvee that’s from higher elevation vineyards, the 2016 Ventoux Edition 1912M is made from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that I suspect was brought up all in tank. It’s a ripe, sexy, yet concentrated wine that offers lots of black cherries, violets, lavender, raspberry and mineral-driven aromatics. Clean, medium to full-bodied, and with rock-solid mid-palate depth, it’s going to drink beautifully for upwards of a decade, although there’s absolutely no need to delay gratification. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
An entirely destemmed and tank-fermented blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, the 2016 Ventoux Edition 1912M references the height of the famous Mont Ventoux. This is a medium-bodied, almost gulpable red, boasting raspberry and blueberry fruit, light, supple tannins and a clean, refreshing finish. It’s picnic-perfect and could even take a slight chill if desired.

Bottled in March, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (80% Grenache) was brought up in a mix of concrete (mostly) and foudre. It gives up sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, graphite, candle wax, and spice. This rich, full-bodied, yet seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a powerful, balanced style that’s going to keep for 15–20 years. It’s a gorgeous wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape weighs in at 15.5% alcohol by volume yet doesn’t show any heat. Blueberries, spice, cherries and stone fruit come in full-bodied, velvety waves and finish rich and long. This looks to be a stellar effort while the fruit lasts.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Brilliant red. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri and Moroccan spice scents show impressive vivacity and focus. Sappy, alluringly sweet and precise, offering palate-staining raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes very long and smooth, displaying excellent focus, even tannins and emphatic, floral-tinged persistence.
