Domaine La Rocaliére's powerful lirac shimmers into the glass with dense crimson. Ideally poured into a Bordeaux glass, this red wine from France reveals wonderfully expressive aromas of rum pot, blueberry, plum and wild berry marmalade, rounded off by oriental spices, cocoa bean and gingerbread spice, which contributes to the barrel expansion.
This red from Domaine La Rocaliére is just right for all wine drinkers who like as little sweetness as possible in the wine. But it never shows barren or brittle, as you can expect from a wine beyond the Superma. This creamy red wine is impressive and complex on the palate. Due to the moderate fruit acid, the lirac flatters the palate with a velvety feeling, without letting it miss out on juicy liveliness at the same time. In the finish, this storable red wine from the northern Rhône Valley wine-growing region finally inspires with considerable length. There are again hints of plum and plum.
Vinification of the domain La Rocaliére Lirac
The powerful lirac from France is a cuvée vinified from the Garnacha, Mourvèdre and Syrah grape varieties. After the hand-picking, the grapes reach the press house in the fastest way. Here you will be sorted and carefully broken up. This is followed by fermentation in a stainless steel tank and small wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the lirac is aged for a few months in oak barrels.
