Domaine Duseigneur, Lirac, Rhône – BKWine Pick

Bernard and Frédéric Duseigneur at Domaine Duseigneur are convinced that you need a soil that is alive if you want to make a wine with quality and character. The domaine is certified organic and biodynamic. “This enables us to make terroir driven wines with a fine minerality”, says Frédéric. He uses the usual biodynamic preparations but he also experiments a lot with different plants that can help the vines and the vineyard to a healthier life.

Domaine Duseigneur is situated in the appellation of Lirac in southern Rhône, opposite Châteauneuf-du-Pape, on the other side of the Rhône river. The well-made wines include a fruity and fresh Lirac Rosé and a very good Lirac Blanc, packed with minerality. The grapes are bourboulenc, clairette and grenache blanc. The reds are more elegant than powerful. One of our favourites is Lirac Antarès made mainly with grenache, supported by syrah and mourvèdre. A great wine with personality and complexity.
