Once again, the Lirac region comes through with a QPR winner. There seems to be a lot of good wines from this overlooked AOC. Give it some air to experience the roasted herbs and spice notes. It's a baby CdP at a fraction of the price.

Attractive in the glass and full of strawberry, rhubarb and (perhaps) red huckleberry on the nose. Some tannin on the finish, but a rush of red fruits on the palate such as unripe strawberry. A palate cleansi... Read More
