Available for:
The purplish ruby colour is followed by an expressive butterscotch, undergrowth and humus notes on the nose. The whole is completed by a full-bodied and spicy mouth with ripe tannins.

Even better than his 2016 (!), the 2018 Lirac by Roger Sabon starts off perfumed and floral, backed by delicate berry notes. Medium to full-bodied, it's creamy and supple, with a long finish. Even after blind-tasting 40+ Liracs, I described this in my notebook as "electrifying stuff." It should drink well for close to a decade.

The 2018 Lirac By Roger Sabon is made in the same balanced, charming, pure style as the Côtes Du Rhône, yet has a touch more elegance, Black raspberries, ground pepper, violets, and spice notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, silky, classy wine. It's a little gem of a wine to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years.
