One of the top wines of the appellation and a blend of 50% Grenache 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre that's aged for 14 months in 35% oak barrels the 2010 Domaine Grand Veneur Lirac Clos de Sixte has an almost cool climate feel with pure detailed aromatics of bramble-laced blackberry mineral licorice and spring flowers that literally soar from the glass. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully elegant on the palate with a seamless silky texture fantastic freshness and a focused structured finish this thrilling Lirac is approachable now with a decant yet should benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age and have upwards of 10-12 years of total longevity.
