From the Critics:

  • "A blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, and barrel fermented Roussanne, the 2011 Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is bright and fresh, displaying a classic profile of white peach, mineral, lime peel, and hints of flowers to go with a medium-bodied, pure, focused palate. This continues to build in the glass, and while there is beautiful richness and depth, it stays very classy and overall elegantly constructed. It should have a decade or more of total longevity." - 93 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
  • "This wonderfully pure white displays seamlessly layered notes of green almond, green plum and Jonagold apple, backed by a hint of macadamia nut on the finish. Creamy, alluring mouthfeel. Drink now through 2013. 150 cases made." - 92 Pts Wine Spectator
  • "The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, comes from the lieu-dit called Les Gallimardes, and is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Roussillon and Clairette. Copious notes of tangerine oil, ripe melon, honeysuckle and caramelized grapefruit jump from the glass of this wine. Full-bodied with zesty acidity as well as purity, this gorgeous white Chateauneuf du Pape should be enjoyed over the next several years. This estate has acquitted itself impressively over the last 5-6 years. It first caught my attention with its brilliant 2007s, which were followed by strong efforts in 2009 and now their finest wines to date, the 2010s. Domaine Giraud is an old estate that has been reinvigorated by the enthusiasm of a younger generation, especially Marie Giraud. They own just over 40 acres in various Chateauneuf du Pape terroirs. The 2011 vintage was successful for Domaine Giraud, as evidenced by the following three wines. Without a doubt the 2010s are the greatest wines made to date by Francois and Marie Giraud." - 91 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
