"Moving to the reds from Lirac, the estate releases two cuvées: the base la Dame Rousse and the flagship La Reine des Bois. The 2015 Lirac Cuvée de la Reine des Bois is a beauty and has a distinct minerality in its black raspberry, black cherry, graphite and bouquet garni-like aromas and flavors. Beautifully rich, supple and textured on the palate, yet with plenty of underlying grip and structure, it should hit the ground running and drink nicely through 2025. - Jeb Dunnuck"
