About the Wine:
Lirac is one of the few crus in the Rhône Valley that produces red, whites and rosé wines. Its terroir is also unique in that it is roughly analogous to its esteemed neighbor, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in geologic age, soil composition, elevation and grape varieties. Just a short trip over the Rhône from Châteauneuf, it should be no surprise that growers there frequently own vineyards west of the river.

Plateau des Chênes is the property that Laurent Brechet owns in Lirac where he makes a range of reds as well as a stunning example of Lirac Blanc. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Clairette, it is an expressively floral and complex wine proving that Lirac is far from the little sister of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Variety: Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A gem of a white readers should seek out is the 2016 Lirac Blanc Plateau des Chenes from the Brechet family. This beauty offers terrific notes of spiced citrus, honeysuckle, pineapple and just a hint of toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied, layered, nicely concentrated and with bright acidity, it’s a winner."
