CHÂTEAU SAINT-ROCH

LVT 2019 r 2019 wh 2012 rosé From the Château de la Gardine at Châteauneuf-du-Pape stable, made by Eve Brunel. High quality whites, very drinkable, the 2017 and 2018 Lirac blancs both pedigree, delightful ****(*) wines, with the 2019 a **** w.o.w. wine. The 2019 Lirac Confidentielle blanc, all Clairette in oak, was a cracking, complex ****(*) wine. Quality also includes the Côtes du Rhône, whose 2016 red was a squeezy ***(*) wine. In the good vintage of 2019, both Côtes du Rhône red and white were a little ordinary, *** wines, however.

The Lirac red accentuates cool fruit, the 2014 a ***(*) w.o.w. wine, although the 2018, a **** wine, held inner strength and good persistence. The Lirac Confidentielle red, 33% each Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre from an interesting 300 metre high vineyard at St Geniès-de-Comolas, is oaked, within reason; the 2015 was a **** wine, the 2018 a plnging ****(*) wine, one to allow time. The Lirac Palmes red is zero added SO2 wine, the 2015 a wholesome, genuine ***(*), the 2016 ****
