Natalie's Score: 90/100

Tremendous value under $18 from Aubert Frères, Château Le Grand Retour Plan De Dieu 2016 is juicy red blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre grapes. Nice spicy nose of ripe black fruits and smoke, with dark cherry, savoury herbs and spicy flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm and there is great acidity on this robust red for food. Pair with a prime rib roast.

Food pairings: gourmet hamburgers, grilled pork chops, barbecued steak.
