The vineyards of Lirac would be almost contiguous with those of Chateauneuf du Pape were they not separated by the Rhone River itself. Long in the shadows of this famous neighbor on the opposite bank as well as the regal, robust rosé flowing from Tavel to the south, Lirac was never allowed to be one of the Southern Rhone’s most visible stars. That doesn’t stop it from producing wines that rival (and often, in terms of value, outshine) those of its more famous neighbors. From the Borrelly/Lemoine family estate, this wine bursts onto the scene with bold, blackish-purple fruit, and exotic perfume. Magnificently Mediterranean!
Serving Suggestion: Roast duck w/ cranberry-balsamic sauce & rosemary. Savory black bean & sweet potato enchilada w/ tempeh & chipotle.
