2008 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition, Domaine Giraud

Just how much this domaine has improved is evidenced by their superb 2008s - a grower is able to show their class in a more challenging vintage and Marie Giraud was well able to meet that challenge. Production was 40% down - part due to nature, part due to selection. The nose reveals fine, soft and ripe damsony fruit. On the palate, the impression of is of a textural, mouthfilling style, with ripe, peppery, red fruit offset by a beautiful fresh mineral vein. Effortless and refined - the fruit was fully ripe when harvested and it shows plenty of style, making it a very successful 2008.
