2019 Lirac, Domaine Giraud

This Lirac is so juicy and vibrant. Marie describes the vineyard they own here as being 45-minutes-by-tractor away from the domaine's cellars on the other side of the Rhône river in Châteauneuf. It's the only form of transport she uses to make the journey, so the only measure she can give. The 60 year old vines grown in sandy soils produce a bright, fresh, aromatic red. It offers many of the qualities you'd look for in a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and, with its superb value, makes it a brilliant everyday red.

2019 Lirac, Domaine Giraud
Domaine Giraud

Although they’ve got a history in the region dating back generations, the Giraud family are relative latecomers to wine, having been distillers for most of their history. They only got hold of their first vines in 1974, with brother and sister team, François and Marie, taking over from their parents in 1998. They focus on each plot in turn, creating some of Châteauneuf’s most elegant and precise wines that show none of the heaviness of some of their neighbours.
