Just across the Rhône river from the beautiful vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Lirac appellation extends over the low hills alongside the river. Have a taste of Lirac with this special mixed case featuring the wines of Château de Montfaucon.
6 bottles x Château de Montfaucon Comtesse Madeleine Lirac Blanc 2019.
This is a blend of Marsanne, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul. The grapes are hand-picked and aged for 8 months in oak barrels.
This wine is creamy and lush, with hints of honeyed tangerine, melon and lime. Backed by a palate that's medium to full-bodied, slowly fading in intensity on the finish. A great example of how deliciously amazing Lirac can be.
What to drink with a Lirac Blanc? This wine and the mediterranean flavours of Bouillabaisse are a super match! It also pairs beautifully with poulet au citron et lavande (Lemon Lavender Chicken), another iconic recipe from the south of France.
6 bottles x Château de Montfaucon Lirac Rouge 2018. This is a blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah (30%) and Cinsault (10%) planted on very old terraces made up of rocky pebbles.
This Lirac rouge shows lovely aromatics with notes of lavender, cinnamon dusted black cherries and plums. Some bright acidity and slightly dusty tannin provide a nice structure for this this full-bodied wine.
Pairing suggestion: It's a fantastic pairing for hearty dishes like stews and roasts.
Delivery time: It requires one full case of each wine in order for us to build and fulfill four mixed cases. This process usually takes about 7-10 business days but may vary.
