An all-Grenache cuvée aged in demi-muids, the 2016 Lirac Bel Canto is another top-notch offering from this estate, which has emerged as one of the standouts in Tavel and Lirac. Hints of smoke, cola and dried spices accent raspberries, cherries and vanilla notes in this full-bodied crowd-pleaser. It's rich and creamy through the mid-palate, then brightens on the finish, turning a bit tart and zesty. It should drink well for 6-7 years.
