RKS Wine: 2021 Plan de Dieu Côtes-du-Rhône Villages

The Plan de Dieu Côtes-du-Rhône Villages has rich aromas of hulled ripe strawberries, black cherry and bright spice buffed up by a tad of root beer. Tannins are moderate. The flavour is intense and rich perhaps too rich and power laden to be a good sipper. Loads of ripe strawberries which are at their peak and just about ready to be considered as overripe. Bordered by cherry liqueur. Short finish. A good multi-purpose bistro wine. My favourite bistro in New York, Les Deux Amis on my last visit served a tasteless Côtes-du-Rhône Villages and I would have enjoyed my Bucky Burger more with this Côtes-du-Rhône Villages! I would rather enjoy a glass of wine with my meal rather than suffering through it.
