2015 Xavier Vignon Lirac

SKU #1424084 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An unusual southern Rhône blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the 2015 Lirac offers bright, juicy acidity and medium-bodied richness. Giving up lots of peppery notes, olive and darker fruits, it has good concentration and impressive purity. (JC)  (12/2016)

Silky and smooth. Who wouldn't want that ? Dark, lush fruits with a hint of creamy cocoa and a touch of vanilla. It is elegant, delicious and gentle. I paired it with a semi- soft cheese and dried salami which was perfect and satisfying.

2015 was yet another superb vintage in the Rhone, and this savory blend is uncommonly dominated by 80% Syrah, with the rest Grenache. A resoundingly luscious cavalcade of plummy ripe fruits, ballasted by garrigue, black olive and peppery notes that reveal the finesse and seductive richness inherent in all of Vignon’s wines. A textbook Lirac, displaying balance, power and inimitable charm.

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
