jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Lirac Cuvée Réservée, another terrific wine from this estate, is mostly Grenache blended with 30% Syrah and 10% each of Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Destemmed and brought up all in tank, this medium to full-bodied effort has loads of chocolate covered cherries, candied violets, lavender, and earthy minerality in its medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy profile. It’s one delicious mouthful of fruit and will continue delivering the goods for another 4-6 years."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Lirac is flat-out outstanding. It gives up a deep purple color as well as terrific notes of red plums, ripe cherries, melted licorice, and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, with fine tannin and an elegant, yet sexy style, it’s a no-brainer purchase to enjoy over the coming the 4-5 years."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Forward and plush, this full-bodied red offers ripe, primary flavors of summer plum and preserved cherry nuanced by subtle hints of bramble, dried mushroom and earth. It's a juicy, easy-drinking wine that's freshly balanced and framed by fine, lingering tannins. Enjoy now–2022. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

wa90"The 2016 Lirac Cuvee Reservee (that's the American label, elsewhere it's just labeled Lirac), a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, is a terrific value for consumers looking for an authentic Southern Rhône. It’s medium to full-bodied, with scents of ripe cherries, licorice and cracked pepper. The tannins are a bit firm, but they add a pleasantly rough edge to the long, spicy finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. - Joe Czerwinski"

wine spectator 90 pts"This has the frank ripeness of the vintage, with creamy-edged plum and boysenberry preserve flavors inlaid liberally with black licorice and fruitcake notes. Good juicy energy drives the fruit through the finish. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2020. 6,500 cases made. –JM"

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Intensely ripe and velvety, this full-bodied, slightly warming red offers loads of richly extracted black-cherry and blackberry flavors. Bold, gripping tannins and hints of graphite and granite lend structure and elegance, but it's a decadent, big-boned wine that needs time to meld. Enjoy from 2020–2026 - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

wa89"The medium to full-bodied 2015 Lirac Cuvee Reservee (that's the American label, elsewhere it's just labeled Lirac) shows a more evolved, rustic character than the 2016. It’s leathery and plummy, still with lovely spice notes, but already drying out a bit on the palate. Drink it over the next year or two. - Joe Czerwinski"

wa90"The 2013 Lirac is also impressive. Made from 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre, destemmed and aged all in cement tanks, it has rockin' Provencal character in its garrigue, black cherry, black raspberry and peppery spice aromas and flavors. These give way to a medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Lirac that has fine tannin, good freshness and elegance, and a beautiful finish. It will have 5-8 years of prime drinking. - Jeb Dunnuck"

vinous logo 250"Dark ruby. Ripe boysenberry, cherry and floral pastille scents are given a spicy touch by a suggestion of white pepper. Fleshy and broad on entry, offering bitter cherry and blue fruit flavors that become more taut with air. Plenty rich, but there's good tension here as well. Closes smoky, spicy and long, with an echo of candied flowers and smooth tannins lending grip. - Josh Raynolds"
