2007 Domaine Duseigneur Lirac Antares Red Wine

Well if the title isn’t too much of a mouthful, this particular blend of wine is!  And I mean that in a good way.  I thought this wine was good, real good; it honestly felt like a party in my mouth.  First off, this wine has a deep rich color to it and as I said before it’s a blend.  The 2007 Lirac Antares consists of 60% Grenache and equal parts Mourvedre and Syrah.  Upon first sip you get a blast of ripeness and a black cherry/raspberry taste.  Also when this full-bodied wine hits your tongue, it’s a little fizzy.  Not like soda carbonation fizzy, but more like a natural fermentation process tingle.  Does that make sense?  Just try it and you’ll see what I mean.

I could not find a website for this wine or it’s company, but I do know it’s grown and bottled in France.  It also does not say organic on the bottle BUT chemicals don’t seem to used in the process of making this delicious wine.  If you would like to read more about their farming practices, click here.

I bought this wine at Binny’s in Chicago for $17.99.  It’s a little more than I usually spend on wine, but it’s definitely worth it.  The 2007 Domaine Duseigneur Lirac Antares can also be bought at other online wine retailers, if you can’t find it at your local grocery store or wine shop.
