What the Critics say
'Full-bodied, lush and decadent, Usseglio's 2017 Lirac features plummy fruit, hints of tar and black olive and a touch of licorice on the long finish. It's a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 10% each Cinsault and Syrah.'
(60% Grenche, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault)
Lirac is South West from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, just across the river where the Usseglio’s have an amazing parcel of 40yr od vines. This wine undergoes a temperature controlled fermentation before being aged in a mix of concrete vats and demi muids (600L oak barrels).
