The finest white I’ve tasted from this estate is unquestionably the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Gallimardes and it should be snatched up by savvy readers. Loaded with notions of white peach, buttered citrus, spice and loads of crushed rock-like minerality, it’s rich, layered and textured, yet also vibrant and pure. Bravo! This estate has been run flawlessly by Marie Giraud for more than a decade now and the estate is consistently in the top handful of domaines in each vintage. She’s excelled in the more difficult 2015 vintage, and has produced some of the wines of the vintage in 2016. If you don’t know about Domaine Giraud, you’re missing out.
