Chateau Courac

Located a few kilometres to the north-west of Lirac, this 90-hectare vineyard can be traced back 400 years. Frédéric and Josephine Arnaud took over the property in 1995 and immediately set about improving the state of the vineyards and upgrading the winery. For a Southern Rhône red, there is a high proportion of Syrah (50%), which gives the wine a distinctive peppery character and rich blackberry fruit.
