Antarès is named after the main star in the constellation of scorpio. One of the principles of biodynamic farming is to work in harmony with the cosmic rhythm. Made with a selection of vines located on hillsides facing North, at the Western end of the Lirac appellation, at an altitude of 160m. The soils are deep sands and sandstones.
Made of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, the 2014 Lirac Antarès possesses the forward, silky style of the estate (and vintage) as well as lots of strawberry, black raspberries, pine and a hint of white pepper. It’ s a smokin’good 2014 to drink over the coming 4-5 years
