This was a real surprise. Deep flavours but remaining fresh. A real hefty punch and yet ideally balanced. I really loved the balance between the two grapes and would probably be even better in a couple of years. Outstanding!more reviews

Incredible! A Parker 92 for this mini-priced Lirac!
This Lirac with its blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, unusual in the southern Rhône, offers rich dark fruit and spice notes and exhibits impressive purity. Supple and indulgent, it is the perfect thing for entertaining guests! One to try as soon as you can!

I have been pursuaded that you can't go wrong with any wine of Xavier. A typical Southern Rhone style, with great alcohol integration. Xavier wines deliver from the lowest to their highest value wines.

Good stuff! This wine as well as other Liracs I tried before, share a fruity, fresh and balanced character without being too fruity/sweet, and offers wonderful value.

This is typical lirac from a good vitage and produced by a famous Xavier Vignon. Vignon's wines have often too much tannin for my taste, but customers will enjoy this lirac's distinct mixture of oak, dark fruit and tobacco.

Nice ruby colour. Black currant and ripe cherry on the nose. On the palate a nice balance of black fruits, medium acidity making it fresh and robust, medium tannins and cacao at the end. Though immediately enjoyable, 30-60 minutes decanting is recommended.

I have had this wine on many ocassions and never disappoints. It is excellent value for money. Has a complex and enticing nose with long spirited after taste.

An exceptionally smooth fruity wine throroughly enjoyable with no sharp after taste. I am liking Lirac apellation, i may need to try a few more for balance. Recommended
