Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

(made from the estate's oldest grenache vines, in La Crau and Pignan): Inky ruby. Sexy, floral-accented scents of dark fruit preserves, garrigue and licorice. Offers intense black raspberry and anise flavors that become more tangy with air. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity and finishes on a gently tannic note, with superb delineation and length.

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.
