Cuvée Elie 2019, Lirac Red 3 stars ***

A metronome’s regularity for this Guide regular, who signs an Elie vintage on a par with 2018, always exquisitely powerful and restrained. The nose is striking for its concentration of black fruits, spices and resin. Structured, with round, silky tannins, the palate is densely textured, impregnated with aromas of jammy raspberry and blackberry, with delicate woody notes in support, the fruit of excellent ageing (12 months in demi-muids). A modèle d’équilibre.”

Lirac Rouge 2019 2 stars ** (in French)

This classic blend, long matured in vats, delivers an engaging bouquet of ripe red fruits and spices (black pepper, nutmeg). After a minty attack, the palate is crisp and soft, underpinned by round tannins. The finale, warm and inviting, adds a southern touch to this characterful Lirac.”

Cuvée Bonheur Rouge 2020 2 stars ** (in French)

“Coup de cœur on the 2019 vintageThis year’s vintage was no exception. A rather classic blend of Grenache and Syrah, but one that delighted the tasters, who were particularly prolix in their praise, evoking a complex nose of jammy fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry), kirsch cherry and garrigue. Built on lovely, tight tannins, the palate offers a pleasant, suave roundness, before a licorice finish, enlivened by fine bitters. A very well-balanced 2020 vintage..”

Cuvée Bonheur Blanc 2020 1 star *

Grenache blanc, roussanne and viognier in equal parts each make their fragrant contribution to this explosive nose of flowers (broom, elderberry), sweet pepper and menthol. Taut on the attack, the palate unfurls floral finesse and unctuous substance, enhanced by a mineral finish. White in full bloom.”
