"The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Cherries and dried spices mingle easily on the nose and palate, and while the wine is full-bodied, it's also amazingly supple, turning silky on the long finish. It may not be tremendously long-lived, but it's delicious."

"Inviting, with lush, warm cassis, raspberry puree and plum sauce flavors that are long and caressing in feel, while flashes of black tea, anise and singed juniper set off pyrotechnics in the background. The finish gains steam and depth, picking up a graphite edge for added drive. Best from 2019 through 2030. 1,665 cases made."
"The Tradition from Domaine Giraud comes from vineyards in the southern part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape famous for its red clay soils and galets. From vines ranging in age from 50–80 years old, the blend is nearly 2/3 Grenache followed by Syrah and small amount of Mourvedre. It is fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks and while the Mourvedre and Grenache rests in concrete, the Syrah is aged in French oak barrels." - Importer
