Tasting Notes

93 points Robert Parker: "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 Châteauneuf-du- Papes, but this effort is capable of lasting 5-7 years where well-stored as it is a big, impressively endowed wine." (10/09). 15% abv.

    The 2007 vintage for this highly-regarded Lirac producer will prove to be memorable for the sheer power, density, ripeness and quality of flawless fruit that found its way into the stainless steel vats. Following a near perfect harvest for the recently acquired (2003) Clos de Sixte vineyards, with grapes sourced from sand and clay soils flecked with the same renowned galets roulés as found across the river in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, this impeccable red wine is resplendently full of ripe, round, generous black fruit, fleshier and deeper than the typical Lirac, with an appealing minerality and voluptuous mouthfeel, finishing pure and long. A wine like this cries out for Eric Story's savory spice-rubbed short ribs, 'sl-o-o-w-cooked'.
