More serious, structured, and meaty is the 2009 Lirac Cuvee Reservee. Fifty percent Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Cinsault, Mourvedre and Carignan, this has more earthy, foresty notes, an opaque ruby/purple color, hints of incense, blue and black fruits, medium body and light to moderate tannin in the finish. It is just becoming drinkable yet should age reasonably well for 5andndash;7 years. The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive.
A great value, the excellent 2003 Lirac Cuvee Reservee is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Syrah, and equal parts Mourvedre and Carignan. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of raspberries, black currants, licorice, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and fruit-driven, with abundant glycerin, heady alcohol, and a spicy finish, it should drink well for 4ndash;5 years.
A brilliant wine, the 2007 Lirac Cuvee Reservee red requires another 6ndash;12 months of bottle age. A combination of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, Mourvedre, and Carignan, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue as well as a big, bold aromatic display of fresh mushrooms, tree bark, blueberries, and black cherries. Deep, textured, full-bodied, powerful, and muscular with some tannin to shed, this offering should be forgotten for a year or so, and consumed over the following decade.
This ripe red shows a slightly raisined edge to its linzer torte, plum sauce and crushed cherry fruit. Licorice and spice notes mark the lightly firm finish. Drink now through 2012.
The dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 Lirac Cuvée Réservée possesses acidity and sweet fruit. It offers plenty of purity, zesty acidity, and a cooler-climate personality (September was cold throughout France).
The 1999 Cuveacute;e Reserveacute;e (check out the terrific label) displays a dense dark ruby color in addition to gobs of Provenccedil;al herb-infused, black cherry and kirsch liqueur notes. It also has a creamy, juicy, succulent texture, and a spicy, ripe, medium-bodied finish. There are no hard edges to this richly fruity, complex wine. Drink it over the next 5ndash;6 years.
