Brechet Lirac2012 Famille Brechet Plateau de Chenes Lirac Red Blend (Southern Rhone)

Blend: 60% Syrah, 40% Grenache

“Lirac sits just across the Rhone river from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but Lirac has never come close to attaining the lofty reputation of its neighbor. Overall, the terroir can’t quite match Chateauneuf’s. The soils are similar in some ways, with plenty of clay, sandstone and quartz. But Chateauneuf enjoys more abundant limestone, and its vineyards also benefit from the influence of the large stones knows as Galets. These large, rounded rocks capture and release heat to ripening grapes and also force vines to struggle for water, producing intense fruit.

Lirac’s terroir features smaller stones, which don’t deliver the power of Chateauneuf’s terroir, but Lirac’s potential is greater than is widely believed as Lirac shares abundant sunshine as well as the mistral, a wind that can blow for days at a time, chasing away humidity and reducing disease pressure while concentrating flavor and structure.”
