2006 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Grenache de Pierre, Domaine Giraud
New to Lay & Wheeler
The brother and sister team of Marie and François Giraud has run the domaine since 1998. Glowing reviews for the 2005s and the 2006s are sure to place this estate firmly on the map. This impressive cuvée comprises entirely old-vine Grenache. Intense, near opaque in the glass, with dark cherry and provençal herb aromas. The palate is so pure and impressive, smooth in texture, with a pruney, liquorice-like sweetness. A bold style with plenty of elegance and concentration as well as the all-important freshness that one looks for in a great vintage.
