Winemaker Notes

Dark red ruby color. Aromas of red berries, truffles and spices. Complex and rich on the palate. It shows red and black fruits, with an herbal spice type of aromas coming from the surrounding vegetation. The average age of the vines is 40 years.
Pairs well with lamb, duck, turkey, red meat, game and cheese.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Lirac showed beautifully. A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, from a mix of sandy and pebbly soils, brought up in tank, this fruited, classic Lirac has loads to love in its ripe plums, garrigue, and herbes de Provence aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and fruit-forward, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years.

Domaine Corne Loup, France
Domaine Corne Loup Winery Image
In 1966 the Lafond family purchased 3 ha. in Tavel and in the beginning they sold the production to the cooperative. Through the years their possessions have increased and today their vineyards cover 27 ha. of Tavel, 10 ha. of Lirac and 4 ha. of Cotes du Rhone. Today Jacques Lafond runs the domain helped by his daughter Géraldine.
The name "Corne Loup" is the name given to this part of the Tavel Village, where someone, back in the old days, used to blow the horn (corne) in order to warn everyone if there was any sight of wolf (loup) coming in town. Domaine Corne Loup is located in Tavel, fairly close to Domaine de la Mordorée. As a matter of fact, Geraldine Saunier and Christophe and Fabrice Delorme are cousins.

A larger region between Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Tavel, Lirac red wines resemble some of the best Cotes du Rhone Villages wines, while it’s rosés are akin to those of Tavel. The region’s quality whites, based on Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, are round and fruit-driven.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
