The village of Pouzilhac is located along the National road 86, which is drawn on the path of the Ancient Roman road linking the cities of Nimes on the South coast to Albas in the North. The first documents mentioning viticulture on the village date back to the 17th Century. The Domaine la Lyre takes his name from the old gate built in the 19th Century, which were decorated with a heavy iron Lyre. The red wines are made from Syrah and Grenache. Our grapes are harvested only when they achieve maximum ripeness, and fermented in concrete vats. Grapes for the red wine are fully destemmed before the winemaking, which usually lasts for 20 days. During the maceration, we use rack and return and pumping over on a regular basis to extract a maximum of aromas, structure and colour.
