2015 Chateau D'Aqueria Lirac Red
In Lirac, vineyards have been a local resource for over two millennia. The Lirac Cru is the basis for the name given to the Côtes du Rhône, for in 1737, to protect and guarantee the origin of the Lirac wine shipped from the port in Roquemaure, the French king ordered that casks of Lirac wine be branded with the letters CDR, for “Côtes du Rhône”. The Lirac Cru obtained its own appellation in 1947, which covers the best terroirs in the four towns of Lirac, Roquemaure, Saint Laurent des Arbres and Saint Génies de Comolas, currently accounting for 715 hectares. Maximum yield is 41 hectoliters per hectare.
From the winery:
A luscious, fleshy and full vintage. This Lirac has a complex and powerful nose of plums and cherries, with hints of vanilla. Mellow and silky tannins enhance the dark, red fruit flavors and spice notes while the ripe Grenache provides lovely, polished smoothness.
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
