"Deep red. Suave mineral-accented aromas of red berries and candied rose, with a hint of white pepper in the background. Juicy and precise, displaying very good spicy cut to its fresh strawberry and cherry flavors. Puts on weight with air and finishes smooth and long, with supple tannins and an echo of floral pastilles."

"Very focused, with a sanguine note tightly framing the core of steeped cherry and red currant fruit. Long and pure through the finish, delivering hints of rosemary, iron and sandalwood. Offers a streamlined feel throughout. Best from 2016 through 2026. 300 cases imported"
"With their elastic definition of young vines, the Giraud siblings have segregated their more youthful Grenache vines (anything up to 50 years old!) from Les Galimardes, Le Crau, Les Terres Blanches and Pignan to vinify them separately to make Prémices. A bright and forward style of Châteauneuf, it is immediately accessible but with a surprising depth and concentration. When there has been growing criticism that the best estates in the region are robbing their basic bottlings so they can make luxury cuvées, it is a refreshing change of pace to see the opposite approach done so successfully." - Importer
