Winemaker's Notes

Grape varieties : Grenache 65%, Syrah 30%, Mourvèdre 5%

Critical Acclaim

"A sleeper selection, the 2007 Lirac Roc-Epine is a richly fruity effort offering hints of fresh black raspberries, cherries, licorice, and earth. With abundant fruit, full body as well as loads of character, it should provide enjoyment over the next 4-5 years. Fair prices and exuberant fruit make it easy for Domaine Lafond’s wines to attract fans. Whether it be their exquisite Tavel rose, their delicious Cotes du Rhones, or their most ambitious wines, the Chateauneuf du Papes, all are noteworthy efforts. These are wines best drunk in their flamboyant youth, and in the case of the Chateauneuf du Papes, in their first decade. 90-92"
