What the Critics say
This estate makes a beautiful Lirac and their 2019 is 50% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah, and a splash of Cinsault that’s from a mix of different terroirs. Destemmed and brought up in equal parts demi-muids and concrete tanks, it’s a seriously good wine that has loads of black raspberry, spice, and garrigue notes, medium to full body, a lush, ripe, yet seamless mouthfeel, and a great finish. It’s well worth seeking out and is ideal for drinking over the coming 3-5 years.

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).
