A tank-aged 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2016 Lirac la Dame Rousse delivers a bright, fruity combination of black cherry and plum fruit. Hints of violets and blueberries join in on the full-bodied palate, ending on a long, slightly tannic finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Score: 90 points -- Joe Czerwinski, RobertParker.com, Oct 2018
This 50/50 blend of Grenache and Syrah is a delicious full bodied red with ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry aromas that follow onto the palate. A silky texture with licorice and a mineral, dusty mouthfeel, this Lirac has been one of my favourite French wines in the southern Rhone Valley.
