An intense red garnet color. On the nose, aromas of red and black ripe fruit (kirsch and wild blackberry) are dominant. The mouth is full, with aromas of blackcurrant liquor and spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant thanks to the fleshy of the wine. The end develop hints of licorice and vanilla, which give to the wine length and complexity.
Blend: 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre
In addition to these gorgeous Chateauneuf du Papes, Domaine Grand Veneur's 2010 Lirac Clos de Sixte is outstanding. It is a full-bodied, rich, textural wine with abundant blue and black fruits interwoven with garrigue and licorice.
Dark purple. Pungent aromas of cherry pit, anise and smoked meat, with a spicy topnote. Rich and broad but lively, offering sappy dark fruit flavors and subtle smoke and licorice nuances. Closes with very good clarity and bite, leaving a bitter cherry note behind.
