The 2018 Lirac is made from 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, all brought up in foudre, demi-muid and tank. It's a more serious, straight, nicely structured wine compared to the L'Unique cuvée and has beautiful black raspberry and hints of cassis fruit, plenty of pepper, garrigue, and floral notes, medium body, beautiful balanced, and sweet tannins. It's another charming, beautiful wine to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years.

A bit more serious than the vin de France, Usseglio's 2018 Lirac offers up scents of dusty cherries and dried spices. A blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, it's full-bodied and silky on the palate, finishing clean and fresh. Drink it on release and over the next 5-6 years.
