Description

No idea where Lirac is? You are not alone! Discover one of the best kept secrets of Rhone Valley through the following video introduction:

Lirac vineyard is facing Chateauneuf du Pape, opposite side of the Rhone River. Soils are almost similar on both sides. They are marked by the violent flow of the Rhone river. It consists of a layer of marine molasses from the Miocene period covered by alpine alluvium. The presence of a great number of rounded stones known as "galets" in the earth is evidence of the time when the Rhone, then a torrent, tore fragments of rock from the Alps and deposited them on the plain. Lirac is one of the upcoming best area from the Southern Rhone Valley, as it delivers outstanding wines.

Tasting Notes

EYE: Intense inky colour.

NOSE: Aromas of red and black ripe fruit (kirsch and wild blackberry) are dominant.

MOUTH: The mouth is full, with aromas of blackcurrant liquor and spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant thanks to the fleshiness of the wine. The end displays hints of liquorice and vaniila, which give to the wine length and complexity.

Food Pairing

Sunday BBQ, cheese platter
