Moulin des Chenas Lirac
- Out of stock
Lirac is one of the hidden gems of the Southern Rhone Valley - just across the river from Chateauneuf du Pape and sharing a similar climate (although less strongly influenced by the Mistral than its more famous cousin on the east bank) and the same sort of stony, galets-roules soils. The wines tend to be a little softer, more fruit-driven and younger maturing than those of their glamourous neighbour, and offer excellent value for money.
The 25 hectare Moulin des Chenas estate produces a soft, generous wine with a distinct Syrah silkiness rounding out the warm, spicy Grenache and Mourvedre fruit.
