Lirac is a Rhone Cru with a difference. In general, the wines are softer than its peers. Here, it’s all about the Grenache with finesse. The terroir in this part of the Rhone is classic well drained limestone covered with a layer of red clay and pebble. The climate is classic Mediterranean with the mistral wind playing a key role. This a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, all hand-harvested, crushed and traditionally macerated. After fermentation in traditional concrete vats, the wine is bottled to capture the finesse of the wine.
Prime rib of beef, classic sausage cassoulet, saddle of lamb with ratatouille or gratin dauphinois. Something hearty and generous.
