Fine Wine > 92-95 Pts > Rhone > Grenache/Garnacha

Grenache is one of the most versatile among red wine grapes. Blended with Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre it creates Cote du Rhone reds Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Cote du Rhone and Cote du Rhone-Villages. It has found even greater use in Spain (where it is the most widely planted red varietal): it's blended with Tempranillo to make Rioja. California and Australia also have large plantings of it. On its own, Grenache is a fruity red wine, best drunk young, with ample but not aggressive tannins and nose and palate of black cherry, black currants and blackberries. Its uncomplicated appeal makes it a prime ingredient in roses and rosados.

Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Premices, which had just been bottled at the time of this tasting, has fantastic ripeness and offers up beautiful Provencal notes of sweet blackberry, currants, toasted spice, cured meats and earthy notes to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate.

Olivier Hillaire Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Classique 2012 750ml
|   WA: 93-95   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Looking at his traditional cuvee, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of mostly Grenache) is a thick, massive effort that got a big “wow!” in the notes. Showing spectacular aromas and flavors of raspberry, spice, licorice and Provencal herbs, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness,..

Domaine Giraud Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition 2012 750ml
|   WA: 92-94   |    IWC: 91-93   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Still in tank, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition has plenty of floral, herb and underbrush notes to go with a core of sweet berry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, rich and textured, with ultra-fine tannin, it should be accessible in its youth yet have a solid 12-15 years drink window."

St-Theodoric Chateauneuf Du Pape "La Guigasse" 2010 750ml
|   WA: 95+   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Chapelle St. Theodoric is a project between winemaker Baptiste Grangeon and Peter Weygandt, or as Robert Parker called it—the “brainchild” of Peter Weygandt. The single vineyard, La Guigasse, is a pure sand soil where the vines (all Grenache) range in age of from 50 to 100 years. The..

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 2006 750ml
|   WA: 94   |    IWC: 94   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
""The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee shares a similar meaty, gamy character intermixed with abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper and Provencal herbs, sweeter tannins than the 2005, a voluptuous, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish. The fruit seems sweeter and I would not be..

Domaine Giraud Chateauneuf du Pape Grenaches de Pierre 2012 750ml
|   WA: 94-97   |    IWC: 93-95   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The cream of the lineup, and possibly the vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre is an incredible effort that possesses notions of bouquet garni, pepper, licorice, cassis and crushed stone-like minerality. Full-bodied, powerful and layered, yet also elegant and with terrific..

Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2012 750ml
|   WA: 95-97   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Even better and showing plenty of similarities to the 2011, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 3,000-bottle lot of roughly 100% Grenache that was brought up all in stainless steel (this is due to not having enough juice to fill a larger barrel). Per Sophie, this cuvee was difficult..
