'This has loads of chocolate covered cherries, candied violets, lavender, and earthy minerality in its medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy profile. Its one delicious mouthfeel of fruit! '' 91 Points, Jeb Dunnock, Vinous Media
"The 2016 Lirac is another terrific wine from this estate, is mostly Grenache blended with 30% Syrah and 10% each of Cinsault and Mourvèdre. This medium to full-bodied effort has loads of chocolate covered cherries, candied violets, lavender, and earthy minerality in its medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy profile. It’s one delicious mouthful of fruit and will continue delivering the goods for another 4-6 years.'' 91 Points, Jeb Dunnock, Vinous Media
"Forward and plush, this full-bodied red offers ripe, primary flavors of summer plum and preserved cherry nuanced by subtle hints of bramble and earthy tones. Lingering tannins.'' 90 Points, Anna Lee Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
''It’s medium to full-bodied, with scents of ripe cherries, licorice and cracked pepper. Long spicy finish.'' 90 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate Magazine
“This truly rare vintage is a new benchmark. The growing season was warm during the day but cool at night, with an unusually large diurnal swing that led to slow, even ripening across all varieties, while maintaining acidity. Reds are laden with fruit, yet extremely racy and fresh in feel.” 99/100, Wine Spectator Magazine
“Unmissable. This is one of the best vintages of the past few decades. Do not miss it,” Decanter Magazine.
