Château d'Aqueria Lirac 2016

A luscious, fleshy and full vintage. This Lirac has a complex and powerful nose of plums and cherries, with hints of vanilla. Mellow and silky tannins enhance the dark, red fruit flavors and spice notes while the ripe Grenache provides lovely, polished smoothness.

- View: deep red with purple hues.
- Nose: ripe red fruit on weapons counted with a hint of vanilla.
- Mouth: is expressive with stone fruit mingled with sweet spices.

The tannins are soft and silky.
They are accompanied by a good length where we find the complexity of weapons.

We tried it at a restaurant.
Cherry red colour with purple edges. Gorgeous toffee aromas. The texture of this wine from Chateau D'Aqueria was oily.

A red that pairs well with moussaka. I think I fell in love with this .
Red wine with reddish brown edges. Aromas of walnuts and hazelnuts. Well-balanced and round flavours.

I took the Chateau D'Aqueria wine with grilled vegetables. A friend brought it for dinner.
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. Its tobacco aromas stood out for me. It reminded me of liquorice.
