2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Les Gallimardes, Domaine Giraud
Les Gallimardes is in the southern part of the appellation, where vines well over 100 years old grow in the iconic pudding stone vineyards. Marie commented that the old vines are coping particularly well with the hot dry summers, with the deep roots still able to access water even in a drought. It wasn’t made in 2018, but is back in style in 2019, so fragrant and plush.
