Terra Ancestra (Cru – Lirac)

Our red wine Cru – Lirac : Terra Ancestra



Blend of Shiraz and Mourvedre.


This “cuvee” is the result of a very strict plot selection. The oldest vines with low yields are chosen. The parcels are located on the clay and limestone terraces of the Lirac appellation area


De-stemmed, crushed and fermented with regular pump overs (two daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. After 5 weeks ‘on skins’ the fermenters are drained off and the skins pressed. The wine is then racked to 300L new French oak barrels (Seguin Moreau, Boutes, Bernard, Vicard). The two varietals are aged separately: the wine is blended before bottling to choose the very best barrels for this cuvee. Once bottled, the wine is aged for a year in our cellar.

Tasting notes
  • Colour: intense red purple
  • Aroma: a mix of Bourbon, vanilla and mocha fragrances. The toastiness of the cask gives way to small pitted fruits: candied cherries and plums. Exotic fragrances of eucalyptus and cinnamon
  • Palate: strong and delicate, impressive concentration of the wine. Yet the tannins are silky and delicate. The final note is long and harmonious
Food pairing

A wine to pair with fine food. Try it with a beef in pepper sauce or in red wine, ‘daube du Marinier’ (provencal stew). Why not have it with an intense chocolate dessert .
