Steven Delaney Ven3 March 12, 2011 Extra Credit Rhone – Lirac Lirac is an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée located in southern Rhône, France. The appellation is due west from Châteauneuf-du-Pape across the Rhone River, and is one of the 13 crus of Rhône. The southern side of Lirac is bordered by the appellation Travel. The appellation spans roughly 750 hectares (as of 2009), and is mostly rocky terrain. Lirac wines were very popular among kings and the papal community in the 17 th century. Henry IV and Louis XIV served them on a regular bases, calling them only Rhône wine. In 1737 a royal decree authorizes the official Côte du Rhône hot iron seal. During the 18 th century, Lirac wines were exported throughout France and Europe, regarded highly for their exquisite flavors. During the 19 th century, phylloxera damaged all the vineyards in France, so those growers in Lirac waited for American vine transplants in order to resume growing. In 1947, Lirac was officially acknowledged for their quality, receiving AOC status.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
