The vines that produce this Lirac are located on the sandy limestone slopes of the mountains of Saint Géniès, at a height of around 300 metres.
Some of the plots planted with old vines have particularly good exposure and produce beautiful and exceptionally concentrated grapes.
The wine they give is aged for 12 months in second and third fill French oak barrels.
Ideal now, but this Chateau Saint Roch Lirac Confidentielle will age gracefully for another five or six years with ease.
