Lirac, Rhone, France
Wine Advocate 92 points!
At the gateway to Provence, on the right bank of the Rhône Valley, the Château de Manissy, bathed by the sun and swept by the mistral, produces three grands crus: Tavel, Lirac and Cotes-du-Rhône. This bicentenary estate, property of the Missionary Fathers of the Holy Family, was handed over to Florian André, a young winegrower, who makes nectars that will entice, with passion and talent. Manissy Lirac is made with organic grapes and certified organic by ECOCERT France SAS.
"The 2016 Lirac from Château de Manissy is a plummy, rich blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% Cinsault that's full-bodied, concentrated and tannic, yet it's supple in texture. It ends creamy and plush, with bright, red-fruit notes coming through and prolonging the finish." Drink 2017-2015-Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 92 points!
