Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Terroir:
Lirac is situated on the right bank of the Rhone River, west of Chateauneuf-du-Pape between the towns of Orange and Avignon. Chateau Mont-Redon's 35 hectares of vineyards are located on a plateau with soils of sand and pebbles, similar to nearby Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Summers are dry and hot with the warm Mistral winds keeping away any humidity.
Vinification:
Grapes are selected and hand harvested beginning in early September. Upon arrival at the winery they are destemmed and macerated at cool temperatures for a period of two to three weeks. Punch down of the cap is frequent to ensure maximum color and extraction. With fermentation complete approximately 1/3 of the wine is aged for a short period in small oak barrels with the remainder remaining in large vats. The wines are then blended and aged for an additional 18 months prior to bottling.

Ratings & Reviews
Robert parker's Wine Advocate:
"A traditional blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, one-third of the 2015 Lirac was aged in barrel, the remainder in tank. Aromas of raspberries, cinnamon and clove dominate, while the medium to full-bodied palate shows ample concentration and silky tannins. This is a likable, easy-drinking red that would serve as a nice introduction to the appellation." - Joe Czerwinski (Oct 2017)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Ripe and focused, with cherry paste and plum sauce flavors laced with a red licorice note. Offers a lightly singed vanilla frame on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases imported." – JM (Nov 2017)
