Incredible Rhône 2015s for R200

Lirac is an up-an-coming appellation that lies just west of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and embraces a similar terroir. Over the years, the great Rhône River has deposited a layer of rounded stones known as galets on each of its sides. Perfect for growing Grenache and usually containing more Syrah than its neighbours, the wine from Lirac offers rich intensity and dark fruit. The Clos de Sixte from the Jaume family of Domaine Grand Veneur is the leader in Lirac and the organically-farmed 2015 is a cracker. It shows intense fruit, grilled herbs and liquorice while offering a deep complexity that trumps its modest price.   

Clos de Sixte, Lirac 2015

Credit Christophe and Sebastien Jaume for making this one of the most impeccably run estates in the Rhône Valley. To reiterate, this is an estate at the top of its game and the wines remain fairly priced as well.’ – Robert Parker

As in Bordeaux and Burgundy, 2015 was an excellent vintage in the Rhône. We have put together a case of the Jaume family’s 2015 releases that should delight every Rhône-lover. Another special mention must go to the humble Les Champauvins 2015 that boarders Beaucastel and drinks like a Châteauneuf. See a full list here, including their La Fontaine Blanc 2015 and single-vineyard Les Origines 2015.

These are modern, powerful expressions of the Southern Rhône without over-the-top sweetness or excessive alcohol. In fact, they are some of the best value wines around.
