« Vin haut de gamme, le Lirac Nessun Dorma  2012 est un assemblage de Grenache (élevé en cuve) et Syrah (un an en barriques), sur sols de galets. Il offre des d’impressionnantes notes de liqueur de cerise noire, de prune, de réglisse, de violette et de pierre concassée, avec un palais moyennement corsé à corsé, souple et texturé. Comme pour La Fermade, il est fait dans un style moderne et délicieux, et doit être consommé au cours des 3 à 5 prochaines années. » (Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

Wine rated (guide 2015) : 91/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Even better, and the top wine in the lineup, the 2012 Lirac Nessun Dorma checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, all from pebbly soils, that was aged in stainless steel (Grenache) and 1-year-old barrels (Syrah). Exhibiting impressive notes of black cherry liqueur, plum, black licorice, violets and crushed rock, it's medium to full-bodied, supple, textured and ready to go on the palate. As with the La Fermade, it's made in a forward, delicious style and should be consumed over the coming 3-5 years.

Wine rated (guide 2014) : 90/100

About this wine : This muscular blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre spends about a year in oak prior to bottling, yet the oak has integrated well, adding notes of clove and cinnamon. Cracked pepper, plums and black olives round out the flavor profile, and dusty tannins linger on the finish.

About the vineyard : Ce domaine très régulier en qualité, notamment pour ses Lirac, dans les trois couleurs, et ses Tavel, a été créé en 1950 par Armand Maby. En 2005, son petit-fils Richard a pris les rênes du vignoble, 64 hectares situés pour l'essentiel sur les galets roulés du plateau de Vallongue ; des vignes cultivées « au naturel », mais sans certification bio. Depuis 2011, l'éminent œnologue rhodanien Philippe Cambie conseille le domaine.

Vineyard rated : 2**Étoiles (Production réussie)

About the vineyard : Un domaine familial d'une bonne soixantaine d'hectares qui fait la part belle aux "petites" appellations du sud de la Vallée du Rhône : Tavel, Lirac et Côtes du Rhône. En 2005, le fils de Roger Maby, Richard, rejoint l'exploitation, décidant de faire évoluer le style des vins vers davantage de fruité et de souplesse. Le domaine est désormais engagé dans une agriculture raisonnée, visant à restreindre l'usage des produits phytosanitaires.

Renowned since ancient times, the wines from Lirac brought prosperity to the region. Over the centuries, the port of Roquemaure became powerful and prosperous, exporting "Côte du Rhône" wines to Paris, England and the Netherlands. The wines of Lirac were decreed an AOC in 1947. Set out in terraces and hills, the Lirac vineyards nestle on the right bank of the Rhône facing those of ...
