Wine of the Month: Lirac Les Chenaies 2010

Patience, know-how, observation and intuition are the essential qualities to create and age our wines. Our team has shared this goal of Excellence since 150 years.

This passionate quest for making Rhône valley wines was born in the prestigious vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Ogier ages the greatest appellations of the Rhône valley wines in ancient cellars.

Vine cultivation on the Lirac appellation has been part of the local resources for two thousand years. Over the centuries, the port of Roquemaure became important and prosperous and it was from here that "Côte du Rhône" wines left for Paris, England and Holland. The "Lirac" local Appellation was awarded by decree in 1947.


60% Grenache, 25% Syrah & 15% Mourvèdre, Cinsault
