2015 LIRAC, ‘La Lorentine’, Domaine de Marcoux. Southern Rhône Organic
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Lirac is one of the southern Rhône villages that is allowed to use its own name on the label. Unusally it is west of the river, about 15km west of the border of Chateauneuf du Pape.
Grape Variety: 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Mourvèdre. Matured in vat and old barrel for 1 year
Producer: Bio-dynamic estate run by two sisters, Catherine and Sophie Armenier, making big but elegant wines that drink young as well as ageing well.
Old Bridge Rating: Pretty chunky - this is great now with the right food but will age beautifully until 2025. A lot of power for the price.
