This big and bold red from Lirac, located directly across from Chateauneuf du Pape, has it all. It’s made by Chateauneuf superstar Vignobles Alain Jaume entirely from fruit from their estate “Clos de Sixte” vineyard. It’s also from the legendary 2016 vintage, one of the highest rated Rhone vintages, ever! Just like his top-rated and high-priced Chateauneufs, Jaume makes this wine with organically-grown, hand-harvested fruit from an exceptional vineyard site. It shows! The blend is 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre.
