*Domaine La Lorantine Lirac 2005
What this red blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is, essentially, is a Chateauneuf du Pape which, because the vineyard is just across the Rhone, can't call itself that. It has many of the qualities of the better known varietal, although it's perhaps a little lighter in body. A very smooth drinking wine, and a good buy at the on-line price of $11.99.
