Domaine Grand Veneur Red Rhone Blend Lirac Clos de Sixte 2009
"A prodigious effort, the 2009 Lirac Clos de Sixte blows away the 2008. This dense purple-colored wine offers up notes of black truffles, charcoal, blackberries, kirsch, garrigue, new saddle leather, herbs de Provence, spice box, and smoke. It possesses great fruit, full-bodied power, excellent depth, and abundant silky tannins...93" WA 08/10
This is tremendous and I think a great bargain for the money. I bought a couple bottles and drank them at different times with different foods. Then I went back and bought a case. This will be good for years to come. Decant and let breath at least a half hour.
External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Red Rhone Blend Lirac Clos de Sixte
have done with this estate. The impeccable attention to detail in the vineyards
Grand Veneur is one of the most brilliant estates in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as the force behind the negociant wines sold under the Alain Jaume label. Virtually everything they produce has merit. Some of this estate's 2009 red wines are just hitting the market as they are bottled early to preserve their fruit and freshness. I can't say enough about the job Alain Jaume's two sons, Sebastian and Christophe, have done with this estate. The impeccable attention to detail in the vineyards, the meticulous vinification, and the careful bottling benefit every consumer.
