Lirac lies to the west, across the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is a Rhône Cru, with a heritage of vinegrowing that is just as long as its easterly neighbour. Laurent and Julien Bréchet have long admired the potential of Lirac and when the owner of the Moulin des Chênes vineyard retired, they jumped at the chance to take over the vinegrowing there.
This wine is deep crimson in colour, with aromas of strawberries and blackberries. On the palate, the wine has a velvety mouthfeel and fresh acidity. Redcurrant flavours continue through the mouthwatering finish. A real delight.
