Made from 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre "The same blend and elevage as the 2012, the Grand Veneur 2011 Lirac Clos de Sixte offers up similar black cherry, leather and ground herb qualities as well as a medium-bodied, textured and easy-drinking profile on the palate. It scores high on drinkability and also offers solid complexity. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019. -JD"
