Grape varieties



There are 21 grape varieties allowed in the appellation. The selection of their particular qualities, the finesse and the richness of their blendings are the result of the winegrower’s work. Grenache, the basic grape variety for red wines, provides fruitiness, warmth and roundness. Syrah and Mourvèdre give to the wine spicy aromas, a deep colour and an intense structure, ensuring graceful ageing. Cinsault provides finesse and is used to produce rosé and en Primeur fruity wines. White wines combine aromas and freshness thanks to the blending of different grape varieties like Bourboulenc, White Grenache, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and/or Viognier.
For red and rosé wines, Grenache must make up at least 40% of the grape variety mix. For white wines, 80% of the grape variety mix is made up with White Grenache, Clairette, Marssanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Viognier.

The Vintages


Lirac

Lirac is one of the most southern wines in the Rhône valley… but also the greatest secret! It grows in a preserved and quiet environment. However, the grape vine growes here since antiquity. The appellation is classified Cru of Côtes-du-Rhône since 1947. The appellation extends over the best soils of 4 little communes in the Gard. Already in the Middle Ages, this vineyard on the Rhône “coast” was renowned for its quality wines. The blending of wines from different terroirs enables to create the Lirac style: powerful, structured and aromatic, but fresh and always elegant. A treasure to explore!
