"Domaine Amido also has vines in nearby Lirac just to the north. The clay soil atop the limestone (Lauzes calcaires) contains large pebbles that provide excellent drainage. Their bottling is made from 50-year-old Grenache vines (60%) in addition to Syrah (30%) and Mourvèdre (10%). The Lirac is aged in stainless steel tanks and sees no oak. It is a lovely balanced wine, showing raspberry and cherry notes, along with a touch of tobacco and spice. Once again, superb value!"- Charles Neal
