Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. Grenache, Syrah. "Château de Mannisy is located in the village of Tavel, right next door to Château d’Aquéria. The current winemaker here is Florian André, who started making the wines here in 2004. Monsieur André converted the vineyards over to organic viticulture soon after his arrival and everything here is now certified by Ecocert. His 2018 Lirac “Trinité” is composed of a blend of grenache and syrah and offers up a ripe and black fruity nose of dark berries, hung game, woodsmoke, coffee grounds, a very good base of soil tones and a bit of hazelnut in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a plush core of fruit, good soil signature and grip, ripe tannins and a long, complex finish. It is already approachable, but a few years in the cellar will allow the tannins to fall away a bit more. Good juice in the riper style of 2018." — 90 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #89 (September / October 2020)
