Food pairing: Cod loins with chorizo and parsley butter would make for a decadent match for this opulent drop.

An estate in the neighbouring village/sub-region of Tavel, with around 70 hectares of vines. Family-owned since the early 20th century. More than half of Raphaël de Bez’s production is rosé (Tavel’s signature style).

Lirac is one of the very best villages in the southern Rhône, a region chiefly famous for its big reds (most obviously Châteauneuf du Pape) but increasingly renowned for its rich but subtle whites.

Peaches, honey, pear, and white flowers, with some exotic notes. A delicate and suave palate that reflects the vibrancy of the Rhone and reveals a wonderful complexity. The long finish offers a beautiful liveliness, the signature of our limestone soil.
