2016 Côtes du Rhône, Domaine Giraud

Impressive vine age (60 years) makes a Côtes du Rhône that punches above its weight. Firm tannins, pure fruits and some lovely spice and depth. This is great.

2016 Côtes du Rhône, Domaine Giraud
Domaine Giraud

Although they’ve got a history in the region dating back generations, the Giraud family are relative latecomers to wine, having been distillers for most of their history. They only got hold of their first vines in 1974, with brother and sister team, François and Marie, taking over from their parents in 1998. They focus on each plot in turn, creating some of Châteauneuf’s most elegant and precise wines that show none of the heaviness of some of their neighbours.
