Lirac, Domaine des Muretins, Dauvergne Ranvier

In 2013, François Dauvergne and Jean-François Ranvier became fully-fledged wine producers when they took over the running of the ten hectare Les Muretins Estate in Lirac. The estate's grapes (Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan, Clairette and Counoise) are grown in vineyards planted on clay-laden soils with stoney terraces on a thin marlstone base. An extremely riged selection process of the hand-picked grapes results in an incredibly low yield of about 15 hectolitres per hectare. This wine has a dense yet lively tint, an expressive nose of red fruit and a full palate with a supple attack and a slightly peppery finish.
