Château Saint Roch's Lirac Rouge is made with some familiar ratios for a Southern Rhone blend with 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 20% Syrah. What's perhaps unusual in this era is the fact that the Brunel family co-ferments the different varietals for what they feel gives greater expression to the wine. What is priced here like a Côtes-du-Rhône is something much more. This medium-to-full-bodied red is generous in texture and concentration. Fruit evocative of cherry and raspberry is graced with the pedigree of the 20-60 year old vines which are cropped at only 35 hl/ha. The 2018 bottling of this wine has yet to be reviewed by the wine press, but the resurgence of this estate has scored between 90 and 91 points over the course of the previous 3 vintages since making its reappearance in the publication. Joe Czerwinski wrote for Wine Advocate that Château Saint Roch is "Fast becoming one of my favorite addresses for this unheralded appellation". (10/2019)
