Cellar/Tasting Notes
Sourced from the pure sandy soils in the Crau area and vineyards around Pignan, Pierre Giraud was always loyal to his parcels of 100 year old Grenache. This cuvée pays homage to his devotion to Châteauneuf du Pape’s flagship variety. Hallmarked by elegance and delicacy, this wine shows finesse perfectly poised by strength of character.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94-97
"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 intensity and depth, it too should be reasonably approachable in its youth and evolve gracefully for 15 years or more. If you can, don’t miss a chance to latch on to a few of these."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93-95
"Inky ruby. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes candied red fruits and cherry-cola, complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals, fresh flowers, cinnamon and suave oak spices. Deep, round and expansive, offering sweet, highly concentrated dark fruit flavors, lively minerality and a hint of floral pastilles. A rich and powerful yet graceful wine, boasting exceptional balance and strong finishing cling."
