Established in the northern part of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826.
"This venerable profession is our legacy, but above all it is our passion, requiring discipline, perseverance and a respect for nature and the challenges she presents us with. Every vintage is different from the last and we must skillfully adapt our growing techniques to the ever-changing behaviour of the vines, the grapes and the terroir. Our aim, as skilled wine growers, is to produce, carefully and lovingly, wines that are intense, rich and complex and that reflect and embody the wonderful terroir of the southern Rhône Valley."
The vineyard is certified as organic.
This Lirac has an intense inky colour. On the nose, there are aromas of red and black ripe fruit, predominantly kirsch and wild blackberry. The wine is full-bodied, with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur and sweet spice. The tannins are both harmonious and elegant. The finish display hints of liquorice and vanilla, which give the wine length and complexity.
This wine will keep for up to 8 years from vintage but is also drinking superbly now.
