Wine tasting notes

This medium to full-bodied wine has a prevailing nose of red and black fruits, which follow through to the silky palate – it’s all about blackcurrants, raspberries and strawberries underpinned with spice.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 89 to 91 pts

Oct 2015 - Jeb Dunnock - The 2014 Lirac is a smoking wine, and when I did more tastings at the syndicate in Lirac, this cuvee always stood out for its purity and elegance. Made from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, it offers plenty of substance and depth in its crème de cassis, blackberry, pepper and wet rock-like minerality. Medium-bodied, perfectly balanced, pure and streamlined, it’s ideal for drinking on release and over the following 5-8 years.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 90 pts

June '16. By Josh Raynolds. Brilliant ruby-red. Spice-accented dark berry, cherry pit and succulent flowers on the perfumed nose. Fleshy and broad in the mouth but lively as well, offering sappy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Closes gently tannic, with very good energy and persistence, leaving a spicecake note behind.


JancisRobinson.com (2013) - 15.5 pts

Tasted Oct 2014 - Crimson. Voluptuously ripe on the nose. Then a little austere and mean on the palate. You could drink this happily with food but it is much skinnier than the Lirac 2013 norm. And just a little simple.


Wine Spectator (2011) - 88 pts

Web Only 2014 - A pretty, perfumy style, with violet and lavender notes out front, backed by supple cherry and red currant fruit. Gives way to a black tea element on the finish.
