CHATEAU DE MANISSY AOC LIRAC COTES DU RHONE 2016
Bathed in sun and swept by the Mistral, a vivid Lirac with depth and balance. Intense flavours of red fruit blend with scents of the garrigue, gradually melding together to give a long, spicy finish.
“The 2016 Lirac from Château de Manissy is a plummy, rich blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% Cinsault that’s full-bodied, concentrated and tannic, yet it’s supple in texture. It ends creamy and plush, with bright, red-fruit notes coming through and prolonging the finish. Drink Date: 2017-2025.
Score – 92.”
-Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker
