The 2007 Lirac Clos de Sixte is composed of 50% Grenache 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre. Abundant licorice graphite black cherry and blackberry characteristics are offered in a full-bodied deep fleshy style. Liracs generally do not age as long as Chateauneuf du Papes but this effort is capable of lasting 5-7 years where well-stored as it is a big impressively endowed wine.

Dark and ripe with plum and crushed currant fruit flavors gliding over chalky mineral tobacco and floral notes. There's an alluring touch of spice on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2010.

Fresh and fragrant aromas of raspberry and cherry with a touch of anise and pepper. Although full-bodied the Clos de Sixte is refreshingly lively and lithe on the palate with a smooth texture and clean red fruit flavors that pick up a bit of tobacco mocha and spice notes towards the finish. This is a thoroughly enjoyable wine and yet another example of the great conditions that were present during the '07 vintage in southern France.
