The Wine:

A concentrated wine with aromas of deep, wild cherry fruits and spicy notes. Full flavoured with a smooth texture, silky tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

Lirac is an appellation on the western side of the southern Rhône Valley. Domaine de Cigalounes is a seven-hectare property which has been certified organic since 2012. It is located on the rocky plateau between the villages of Tavel and Lirac, on the opposite bank of the Rhône from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre vines are grown according to traditional methods, in red soils which are rich in iron and minerals and have a pebbly topsoil. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably, respecting the environment, soil and biodiversity of the terroir.

Winemaker, Sévrine Lemoine, as a non-interventionist, looks for finesse and silky tannins, rather than over-extraction. The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum maturity and sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified. Each variety was fermented separately with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, lasting for three weeks. 20% of the blend was matured in barrel imparting subtle complexity.
