About

93

"Coming in (rating-wise) right where I projected it would last year, Giraud's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific example of a cuvée tradition. At 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, it's a pretty typical blend yet one that exceeds expectations. It's full-bodied, plush and velvety, showing ample ripeness—raspberries, cherries, and stone fruit—without going over the top into cooked fruit. No, it doesn't show that much complexity at this age, but some of that will emerge over the next decade or so."

"I loved the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape, and I’d certainly be happy with a case in the cellar. Offering a pure, elegant, incredibly Grenache-driven profile of sweet black raspberries, incense, violets, and garrigue, it’s medium to full-bodied, ethereal, and elegant on the palate. It’s already hard to resist yet will keep for 10-15 years."

Product Description:

"We’re very attached to ‘Tradition’, our inheritance passed on from our parents and their parents before them for generations. This wine symbolises our affection for Châteauneuf-du-Pape, our family and our obsession. It’s made from a blend of mostly Grenache. Rich and powerful, it reflects its ‘terroir’ with those black cherry notes typical of our appellation.

Attractive red cherry colour with light purple tints, displays nice kirsch and squashed plum aromas. Rounded chunky mouth-feel, weighty with strawberry jam, raspberry and cooked cherry fruit, lovely ripeness." - Winery
