Lirac Domaine La Rocalière 2016
Jacques Borelly handed control of the estate to his daughters Séverine Lemoine and Mélanie Borelly, who respectively manage winemaking and sales. Certified organic since 2011, the estate seduces with this blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The cuvee, never aged in barrels, reveals an ample, fruity and spicy mouth.
