Detailed information

Vintage

A vintage with considerable sunshine in the Spring and Summer, similar to 2003. These conditions caused the vines to develop and ripen at a more accelerated pace. Flowering however took place relatively well and in good conditions. Welcome August rains stabilized the situation and allowed the harvest to take place between mid-August and mid-October. The result, from this atypical vintage, ended up producing wines with a solid structure and lovely deep fruit.

Grape varieties

Grenache noir, Syrah

Terroir

Located on the right bank of the Rhône River, right next to Tavel and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Lirac Appellation displays many qualities of its prestigious neighbours while developing a distinctive personality, very elegant and subtle.

Winemaking

Harvest at optimum ripeness. The grapes are sorted and destemmed. Traditional vinification with a long vatting time (up to 3 weeks) to concentrate the colour and the aromas.
