Two millennia of wine history in the Southern Rhône Valley has naturally created a selection of grape varietals well adapted to the Lirac region and its terroir: soil, landscape and climate. The Lirac appellation extends itself on the low hills alongside the river, just across the Rhone river from the beautiful vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Rodolphe de Pins, owner and winemaker at Chateau de Montfaucon, is very attached to the idea that they must conserve this natural heritage that is a true asset to their region. This evolution leads to well balanced and harmonious wines with a true identity of Rhône.

This cuvee, named after Baron Louis de Montfaucon, the founder of the family who restored the medieval castle of Montfaucon in the 19th century. He was a true wine lover, and produced and sold his own wines. It is in his honor that this cuvée, a blend of five grape varieties (50% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 10% Mourvèdre), bears his name. Baron Louis has the richness of the Southern Rhone Valley wines associated with the finesse and elegance that characterize Montfaucon’s wines. Sourced from a selection of the Chateau's old vines, with an average age of 60 years old.

There’s a touch of pepper and juniper here, it’s full-bodied, very savoury style. The tannins are just-ripe and it’s well balanced with a long finish - there's tension and power here rather than concentration of fruit, and it will take a while to really reveal itself. This will be one of the longer-lasting Liracs of the vintage. A blend of Grenache Noir (50%), Cinsault (15%), Syrah (15%), Carignan (10%), Mourvèdre (10%). Hand-harvested, destemmed. 80% spends a year in one or two-year-old barriques. Then it all spends a year in concrete, followed by a further year in bottle.
