“Lafond Roc-Epine remains one of [Lirac’s] benchmark producers” – Wine Advocate
Pascal Lafond has been joined on the family estate by his two sons, Jean-Baptiste and François, where together they continue to push the domaine to ever-greater heights.
All 85 hectares are farmed organically, avoiding the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides and the harvest is done by hand.
50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Mourvèdre. From a single parcel of old grenache planted on galets roulés plus a selection of the best syrah and mourvèdre of the estate. The syrah and mourvèdre are aged for twelve months in oak barrels of which a third are new, whilst the grenache remains in stainless steel vats to preserve the maximum of fruit. A rich, complete wine with sumptuous fruit, carefully extracted tannins and an impressive, sweet aftertaste. Châteauneuf quality at a Lirac price.
