2014 AMIDO LIRAC
Christian Amido founded this domaine and completely renovated the chai, installed a new press and replaced the cement tanks with stainless steel. Domaine Amido is now run by Christian's daughter Nathalie. Her son-in-law, Antoine Berthaud, is the winemaker. They own vines in Tavel and Lirac. In Lirac, the clay soil atop the limestone (Lauzes calcaires) contains large pebbles that provide excellent drainage. This bottling is made from 50-year-old Grenache vines (60%) in addition to Syrah (30%) and Mourvèdre (10%), aged in stainless steel tanks. It is a lovely balanced wine, showing raspberry and cherry notes, along with a touch of tobacco and spice.
