About

90

"More compact and dense than the 2018, the 2017 Lirac La Lorentine offers up tarry aromas alongside scents of black olives and cola. It's full-bodied and firm, with some chewy tannins that warrant short-term cellaring and a long, licorice-laced finish."

Product Description:

"A relatively new addition to their holdings and totaling 8 hectares, their property in Lirac is a mix of Grencahe, Syrah and Mourvedre on a complex terroir of sand, pale clay limestone and gravelly red clay. It was a sadly neglected vineyard so it has taken many years to convert this site to biodynamics which is just beginning to show in the wines. What was once simple and benign has become stony and refined with a raciness from the Syrah (up to 30% of the blend) and real muscle from the Mourvedre (also up to 30% of the blend). A unique wine in the context of the property and a very serious style for Lirac." - Importer
