Chateau De Segries, Loving Lirac

20180628_183334.jpg

Entering the highest dimension of Enlightenment was easy with this beautifully succulent mistress of Lirac.  What is Lirac you ask.  I know you are just looking for a way to join me in this ultimate Nirvana.  Lirac is actually an AOC.  It is on the Right bank of the Rhone just across from Chateaunuf du Pape.  How is that for a neighborhood.  I would move there in a heartbeat.

The prominent grapes in the AOC are Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre.  This lovely drink adds a little cinsault to balance out.  Dark rich and supple.  Floral notes on the nose, if you close your eyes lay your head back, you can feel the light winds blowing from the Alps and smell the lingering aromas of nearby gardens and orchards.  the easiest and cheapest way to visit France.  Talk about a budget.

The juice is over abundant with fruit. Concentrated with tannins, not to bold though.   Blackberry, plum, ripe bing cherry.  What a colossal  for your mouth to take in.

Enjoy with grilled or roasted meats, or just damn enjoy.  This is a fantastic wine now a 2015, but give a few more years and WOW a real powerhouse.

Enjoy
