From an estate just a stone's throw across the river from highly esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf du Pape. The winemaker, Rodolphe de Pins, is a UC Davis grad and one of the former winemakers from Vieux Telegraphe. This wine's pedigree and classic style shows through. Complex and layered with notes of cherry, blackberry, garrigue, and pepper. It continues to bloom with another layer of floral, pine needles, and cedar. Lingering tannins and vibrant acidity polish the lustrous finish. The 2010 vintage was exceptional for the Southern Rhone, this wine included.

Very nice acidity with some fresh sour red fruit notes. Enough body to satisfy. This wine should really sit for another 4 years to uncover the complexity under neath the tannins and broaden the mid palate.

Great #Rhone #wine. Love this producer, and this was the first taste of the #Lirac. Smooth deep cherry, but not stewed. Balance. I like how the palate finishes light and lifting with brighter red fruits. Plenty of character for the price!

Dusty, smoky, lots of pepper. A hint of ripe grapes in the front. Lovely. Wish I was patient enough to try it tomorrow.
