Producer Notes: Rodolphe des Pins took over this estate in 1995, re-invigorating
the vineyards that had fallen into disuse. It is a historic site, with the first towers of
the Chateau being built in 11 th century to guard the French border from the Holy
Roman German Empire.

Area Notes: Lirac is located directly across the Rhone river from Chateauneuf-du-
Pape, extending across the low hills alongside the river.
