This "terrific value" of a wine will satisfy all Southern Rhone lovers.
If you enjoy Cote du Rhone, Cote du Rhone Village, even Chateauneuf du Pape, you've got to keep a few bottles of this Lirac on hand. It's one classic red to pour when you want to keep those CDPs safe from prying corkscrews and you still want an earthy red for roast lamb or a garrigue-inspired stew with sage.
