($80; 100% grenache from vines over 100 years of age in the Crau and Pignan climats Bright red. Rich cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by black cardamom, fruitcake and minerals. Deeply concentrated, powerful dark berry flavors with slow-building smokiness. The minerals repeat on the finish, which is broad, chewy and impressively long. This baby needs a lot of cellar time.

Pretty volatile but masses of pleasurable super-ripe liquorice flavoured fruit. A strong statement of a wine this which promises lots of alcohol and pleasure. Slightly hot finish but not forced. All Grenache.

About This Producer


Domaine Giraud is a collaborative effort between husband and wife team Pierre and Mireille Giraud. Starting in 1974 the couple began producing wine from 10 acres of vines which they tended as tenant farmers. After gradually acquiring several plots of their own land, the couple turned the ancient family distillery into a winemaking facility in 1981 and started bottling estate wines as Domaine Giraud.

The estate is now manged by Pierre and Mireille's children, Marie and Francois, and it stretches over 47 acres of land with the vines planted on ideal Chateauneuf du Pape terroir. Red wines are produced from 100-year-old Grenache vines, as well as plots of Mourvedre and young Syrah. For the white wines, the family grows Clairette, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne.
