Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
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.
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)
