Intense inky colour. On the nose, aromas of red and black ripe fruit, kirsch and wild blackberry. Full bodied with flavours of blackcurrant, licorice and spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant. The finish display hints of licorice and vanilla which give to the wine length and complexity.
Alain Jaume Clos des Sixte Lirac
"Even richer, the Grand Veneur 2012 Lirac Clos de Sixte is comprised of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre that's aged 16 months in 30% small barrels. It exhibits ripe, voluptuous notes of blackberry, licorice, underbrush and hints of minerality in a full-bodied, rich and textured profile. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. Drink now-2022." 90-92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2013
