"Bright orange. Powerful aromas of orange pith, raspberry and fennel take on a subtle mineral nuance in the glass. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, blood orange and succulent herb flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Finishes long and juicy, showing very good clarity and a lingering touch of candied lavender. -- Josh Raynolds"

THE WINE
" Pascal Lafond's beautifully made wines from Tavel, Lirac and Chateauneuf-du-Pape are among the finest values the region has to offer. This 65-hectare family-run estate, located in the rosé-only appellation of Tavel, produces what is widely considered (by Robert Parker, among others) to be the best Tavel available. Their Lirac Blanc – a blend of Grenache, Roussanne and Viognier – is a rich, vibrant Rhone white, with lovely honeyed and floral aromas. Their reds – including a Cotes-du-Rhone, a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and two different Liracs – are impressively concentrated, meaty and pure Grenache-based wines that are nonetheless balanced and well-structured. Today’s cellar was built in 1970, with several extensions made over the years to accommodate the domaine’s fairly robust production. These wines are simply stunning values!" ~ Winery notes
