Domaine Roger Sabon Lirac Chapelle de Maillac 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The village and commune of Roquemaure where the wine is produced enjoy Saint Valentin's patronage. Does this mean that our Lirac is favoured by lovers? We will leave that to you to find out. In any event, Roquemaure has a long and interesting history. It was at Roquemaure that Clement V, the first Avignon pope, died. During the Middle Ages the village was also an important river port from which barges laden with "Coste du Rhone" wines, produced in our appellations, moved up the river Rhone to the north.
