Famille Brechet Plateau Des Chenes 2013 (France: Rhone, Southern)

Name Famille Brechet Plateau Des Chenes 2013
Varietal Lirac
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "The 2013 Lirac Plateau des Chenes red is composed of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah (60- to 80-year-old vines) aged nine months in a combination of demi-muids and older barrels. Its deep ruby/plum color is followed by a sweet kiss of kirsch, black raspberries, lavender, pepper and flowers. Perfumed, elegant, medium-bodied and gorgeously fruity and lively, it can be enjoyed over the next several years." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Lovely kirsch and raspberry p√Ęte de fruit flavors glide along, carried by silky tannins and backed by an enticing pebbly hint on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 900 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
