Domaine Les Colombettes Lirac 2018
Rhone Blends | France
Normally $30, today $19.95... BUT, if you purchase 6 bottles or more, price goes down to $15.95 each, free ground shipping included! With a 95-point score from Decanter, we’re not sure why…anyone (!)...would pass this up! Wow!!
Crazy! You could easily spend $100+ for a 95-point Rhone like this! When the opportunity arose last year, we bought all we could of this rocking delicious, juicy yet sophisticated-feeling red. It just landed in Napa, so DO NOT miss it!
Like many Lirac wines, the Grenache/Syrah blend is typically reminiscent of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, with a bit more power. In the excellent 2018 vintage, this strength and ripeness of red stone fruits and blue fruits is truly spectacular, as you’ll (hopefully!) see! Every bit 95 points!
Decanter World Wine Awards, one of the most prestigious wine tasting competitions in the world (with perhaps the most accomplished tasting panel), gave this a gold medal and rated this 95 points out of literally thousands of wines tasted. High praise indeed! All tasted blind by a panel of 10 Master's of Wine, 3 Master Sommeliers, and the rest seasoned wine professionals and tasters.
*** One caveat – we have less than we’d like. Best move quick! ***
