2015 Corne Loup Lirac Rouge - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Lirac is a medium to full-bodied beauty that already offers attractive drinking. Scents of garrigue and licorice brighten dark cherry and plum fruit, while the tannins are supple, turning silky on the finish. At the suggested retail price of $20, it's a solid value. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2015 Lirac showed beautifully. A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, from a mix of sandy and pebbly soils, brought up in tank, this fruited, classic Lirac has loads to love in its ripe plums, garrigue, and herbes de Provence aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and fruit-forward, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years."

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Concentrated blackberry, plum and cherry aromas are reminiscent of a ruby Port on the nose of this intensely ripe red wine. It's rounded and rich on the palate with soft acidity and fine, firm tannins. Approachable now it should hold well through 2021. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

wa300"Also good, the 2011 Lirac is a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. It reveals soft, fruity, strawberry and black cherry notes intermixed with hints of underbrush, tobacco leaf, licorice, pepper and baking spices. Medium-bodied, lush, delicious and evolved, it should be consumed over the next 1-2 years. - Robert Parker"
