The opinion of the sommelierRichard Maby is a talented winemaker renowned for his white and red wines from Lirac and his rosés of Tavel. I really like his author's wines and Nessun Dorma is a real jewel! Its deep garnet robe reveals a powerful nose from which emanate delicious ripe cherries, enhanced by a woody and an animal leathery touch ... An intense experience !
TerroirThe vineyards of Lirac grow on the same rolled pebbled stones as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the prestigious neighboring appellation. These large clear pebbles reflect the sun on the berries, keep the heat and warms the air around the grapes. The harvest revealed grapes with great maturity, grown to give birth to powerful and elegant wines.
Grape varietyThe main grape variety of the appellation is Grenache Noir. It brings to the wines of Lirac its power, its color and its generosity. Blended with Syrah, the wine becomes more delicate with aromas of spices and flowers, and improves wonderfully with time by developing delicious truffle notes.
VintageThe north wind, coupled with the sun of August and September, have regained a month of July strangely rainy in this region. This generous weather, associated with an exceptional terroir, allowed the berries to reach a beautiful maturity while retaining a great acidity to give a fine wine, more subtle than usual.
