Chateau Gigognan Cotes du Rhone Les Vignes du Prieré Rouge 2016
Double Gold Medal Winning Vintage!. The palate is lush and super silky in texture with loads of dark plums, violets, spiced garrigue all unfolding into a wave of velvet tannins and racy acidity. Another stunner from this estate.
Domaine La Florane À Fleur de Pampre Visan Rouge 2015
A very well regarded vintage sees this with more concentration and spice than usual. This features an array of black fruit woven though clove and spice, with pleasantly ripe and grippy fruit tannin. A blend of Grenache and Syrah.
The name Roger Sabon is synonymous with the Rhone Valley. Kirsch notes intermixed with some underbrush, liquorice, and garrigue are followed by a lush, richly fruity, engaging style of wine that is ideal for everyday drinking.
''Aromas of purple flowers, dark fruit, anise, cocoa and a lingering light pepper spice and gentle tannins. …the 2010 Lirac is one of the finest Liracs I have ever tasted,” 91 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
