Domaine du Joncier Lirac Rouge '13

Marine Roussel's story is that of many newer generations of winemakers that come from a lineage rich in winemaking. Before realizing their true path, it seems they have begin a different path to inevitablly lead them back to their their steps.  Marine left Lirac when she was young to live around France in cities like Paris and Marseilles, but she eventually felt the urge that pulled her back to her hometown where she quickly realized that her ultimate goal was to take over the family winery that her father started in 1964 and continue on the path that her family paved.  She has elevated her family's domaine into something greater with intense focus on vineyard management that led her to organic and eventually biodynamic certification as of 2011.  She is a master of an area deemed difficult due to its intense hot climate; maximum sun exposure and ripeness like that of Tavel must be tempered, and that is where both nature and Marine’s artistry comes into play.  Lirac is often compared to Tavel or the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but you'll find the value in this area that is worth mentioning.  That along with Marine's precision to keep balance and purity in mind by developing low-yeilding vines, full of natural concentration and depth, while seeking gentle tannin extraction, too, an important step that provides balance to the final blends.  This blend is compromised of 30 – 40% Syrah, 40 – 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault & Carignan.  This is not to be missed for any Rhône fan.
