"Filled with wonderfully ripe fruit, yet fresh and floral in character, this is a top example of Lirac. Black cherry fruit forms the core, supported by firm acids and tannins and accented by hints of licorice on the long finish. Drink now-2020.Editors' Choice"
"The Lirac 2009 Clos de Sixte may look expensive, but this is a sensational wine capable of lasting for a decade or more.
