This is immediately satisfying in the glass. Lush and fun to drink with ripe cherry fruit, soft dusty tannins, and a subtle spice throughout. An absolutely fantastic bottle that over-delivers completely. Pick up a few of these as they will become firm favorites for daily drinking.
Somehow Roger Sabon has captured joy in the bottle. His 2016 Lirac by Roger Sabon boasts subtle spice and vanilla shadings upfront, then elevates the mood with easy-to-drink ripe cherry fruit that's concentrated yet never seems heavy on the palate. This medium to full-bodied wine is lush and fun to drink, ending with softly dusty tannins that lend a welcome savory edge to the long finish. It should drink well for close to a decade.
Immediately satisfying and slightly meaty nose. A medium-bodied style that's deeply flavoured, with a touch of cocoa to the fruits. It has a broad, mineral grain, all very ripe, and is already showing some potential for complexity. Enjoyably textural, this is a smart buy in this vintage.
