Description

Château Mont-Redon is one of the Southern Rhone's most recognisable producers.

With a long laundry list of acclaim and accolades, this estate has undergone something of a rebirth over the last couple of decades, taking their wines to another level through fastidious work in their iconic vineyard and the adoption of more modern winemaking techniques and equipment in the cellar.

Their wines are recognised as some of the best value to be had in the Southern Rhone.

This Lirac Rouge, a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, shows lively fresh fruit with a hint of toasty, creamy oak. It gives you a great hit of Southern Rhone, not far off the quality of some Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Great buying from an iconic producer.

70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre totally de-stemmed with ferment up to 3 weeks and aged 2/3 in tank and 1/3 in barrel for 18 months before assembling and bottling and ageing another 4 months under cork before sale. These vineyards were purchased in 1997.

90 Points - "Leading off the reds, the 2018 Lirac checks in as 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in 25% new oak. This elegant, pure Lirac exhibits notes of black raspberries, ground pepper, flowers, and spice. With subtle background oak, medium body, and silky tannins, it’s a beautiful wine to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years." - Jeb Dunnuck

90 Points - "The bottling of Lirac from Château Mont-Redon is always one of my favourite values in the southern Rhône and the 2018 has again, turned out very nicely indeed. The wine is comprised of a blend of seventy percent grenache, twenty percent syrah and ten percent mourvèdre, grown in soils quite similar to Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2018 Lirac comes in listed at 14.5 percent
alcohol and offers up a bright and complex bouquet of red and black raspberries, pepper, roasted meats, a fine base of stony soil tones and just a hint of fruitcake in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and well-balanced, with a fine core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, focused and classy finish. This is excellent wine and a fine, fine value!" - John Gilman (View from the Cellar)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
