($75) Bright ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by sexy floral and incense notes, with hints of baking spices and minerals adding lift. Juicy, sweet and focused, offering vivid red fruit flavors and a strong undercurrent of tangy minerality. Packs serious punch but there's also a pinot-like elegance to this wine that's intriguing. The pliant, lush finish echoes the red fruit and spice notes and refuses to let go of the palate. (Eric Solomon Selections, Charlotte NC

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.
