Just across the river from its famous neighbour Ch芒teauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac is nestled in the sunny Southern Rh么ne. Lovely rich red wine, typical of the Southern Rh么ne, with a spicy, smooth finish. Pair with roast lamb or a rich and peppery tomato-based dish.

About the producer Jocelyn Raoux

Domaine Jocelyn Raoux is located in the Rh么ne Valley, 20 kilometers from Avignon and Ch芒teauneuf-du-Pape, in the Gard village of Lirac. Its origins date back to the 19th century when Aim茅 Raoux arrived in the small town which at the time had around 360 inhabitants. He practiced polyculture and lived off his olive trees, some cereals, market gardening, the cultivation of silkworms and a modest vineyard that he developed and which gradually became his main activity. Today, the estate comprises 25 ha mainly in Crus Lirac, of which 7 ha are dedicated to the private cellar for production of C么tes du Rh么ne and Lirac in red, white and ros茅.
