♦ Grape Varieties
60% Old Grenache (average 60 years of age)
♦ Tasting Note
More and more estates based in Châteauneuf-du-Pape are producing wine from Lirac. Giraud's 2018 Lirac Vieilles Vignes is a standout effort, with gentle garrigue notes of rosemary and bay leaf accenting ripe raspberries and stone fruit. Full-bodied and supple, it's easy to drink but shows ample concentration, sufficient to sustain it for at least 5-6 years.
