The wine :
Since 2006, the Quiot Family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, owns the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and few hectares of Beaume-de-Venise.

"Respectful of achievement but rich of our wine-maker knowledge, we have adopted this land whose singularity fits in with all our others properties, in the same line of tradition, quality and adaptation."

Location :
In the Middle Ages, crossing this vast scrubland forest, at the mercy of the rascals, deserved that we surrender our soul to God. It is probably to this legend that the Plan of God owes its name. Since then, the vine has colonized this territory. Today it extends over 1,500 hectares at an altitude of 110 meters. The few woods still present are scattered in the heart of this vineyard set on a bed of red clay and a multitude of large rolled pebbles that sink into the ground up to ten meters deep. Due to this considerable thickness, the soils are skeletal and produce little: hardly more than one bottle per vine! On this terroir, their combination gives brilliant and colorful wines, dense and concentrated. On the nose, they remind the surrounding scrubland: thyme, bay leaf and undergrowth. The vineyard was consecrated in 2005 to Côtes du Rhône Villages with geographical denomination, an appellation which applies only to reds.

Terroir :
Regarding the appellation, this fairly uniform terroir corresponds to the vast alluvial terrace formed by the Aigues and Ouvèze at the time of the Riss 2 or 300,000 years ago, topped with limestone gravel dating from the Era of the Quaternary. These pebbles are based either on blue clay from the Pliocene, or on sandstone saffres, ensuring rising humidity which relatively preserves the growth of the vine during the summer drought. On the domaine, the terroir is a vast alluvial terrace rich in pebbles.

Vinification :
Total de-stemming,.Vatting time : 3 weeks. Matured in vats.

2 grapes varieties : Grenache - 歌海娜 - Syrah - 西拉



USA - VINTAGE : 2015 A blend of Grenache and Syrah matured in a mix of tanks and barrels, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone villages Plan de Dieu is a full-bodied wine loaded with scents of brandied cherries and even apricot. It's supple and creamy and shows those exotic notes without any trace of heat while remaining lively and fresh on the long finish

VINTAGE 2015 - The 2015 Château du Trignon Côtes-du-Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu begins with lots of woodsy notes on the nose – it smells wonderful, a bit like a barrel room. You’ll also find some pleasing aromas of blackberry and apple plus a little black pepper and spice. The wine tastes smooth, round and soft in the mouth with lots of sweet, fleshy fruit along with licorice, nice herbal touches and spice. The fruit turns a bit tart on the dry, slightly grippy finish of this medium-bodied, easy drinking wine. Lingering touches of apple, berry and spice hang around for a while. Wonderful!

VINTAGE 2015 - De Famille Quiot wordt vaak in één adem genoemd met het zuidelijke Rhône-gebied en is eigenaar van meerdere wijn-gaarden in de belangrijke “villages” als Vacqueyras, Gigondas en Châteauneuf du Pape. Maar de familie bezit ook het prachtige wijnhuis Domaine Houchart in de Provence bestemd voor de productie van rosé. Maar we hebben het nu over een mooie rode, afkomstig uit Plan de Dieu, een appellatie die behoort tot de Côtes du Rhône Villages. Een stevige, robijnrode wijn met tonen van blauwe bessen die gepaard gaan met een lange afdronk. Lekker bij Provençaalse stoofschhotels. (English) The Famille Quiot is often mentioned in the same breath as the southern Rhône region and is the owner of several vineyards in the important villages such as Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Pape. But the family also owns the beautiful winery Domaine Houchart in Provence intended for the production of rosé. But we are now talking about a beautiful red, from Plan de Dieu, an appellation that belongs to the Côtes du Rhône Villages. A sturdy, ruby red wine with hints of blueberries accompanied by a long finish. Serve with Provencal stew dishes.
