Located on the right bank of the Rhone, just across the river from Chateaneuf du Pape, Lirac used to make mostly rose, just like nearby Tavel. Today, it is better known for its reds, though rose and a little white wine is also made. Red (or rose) Lirac must be at least 40% Grenache, with Mourvedre, Syrah, Cinsaut, and Carignan making up the difference. They can represent great value for lovers of the southern Rhone’s wines. White Lirac is made from Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Ugni Blanc, Picpoul, and Grenache Blanc. It is typically aromatic and full-bodied.

Fairly bold and jammy. Mostly plum and ripe blackberry, raspberry and currants. Some spice, but I have trouble deciphering the oak in a lot of the wine I drink. I know... Read More

  • Chateau de Montfaucon Baron Louis Lirac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lirac - a fine wine in its own right, just across the Rhone from Chateauneuf-de-Pape, is nevertheless a cheap alternative to CdP. This wine, for instance, from the very good 2010 vintage, exudes blueberry in spades and introduces cherry, cola, dark chocolate and (of course) blueberry to the palate - which has great staying power. Its power dim... Read More
