Produced by the Giraud family, this is 100% Grenache sourced from 60-year-old vines planted on sandy soils in Lirac, the southernmost Rhône appellation, a little spice and a lovely smooth finish.
This spectacular wine is a massive 15.5% alcohol but it is perfectly balanced on the palate... situated on the terraces of Lirac this is a completely heroic creation and it is stunning with the Braised neck of pork with cannellini beans.
