Domaine Giraud 2015 "Prémices" Chateauneuf-Du-Pape


"From the younger vines of the estate (which range from 10- to 50-year-old-vines) and 100% Grenache, the 1,000-case 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Prémices is a perfumed, elegant, sweetly fruited effort that has lots strawberries, framboise, licorice and crushed flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s a polished and seamless as they come, and a seriously good effort to drink over the coming 4-6 years.
Under the inspired leadership of Marie Giraud, with assistance from consultant Philippe Cambie, this estate has quickly risen into the tiny handful of top estates in Châteauneuf du Pape. The style here incorporates a mix of traditional and progressive techniques, and while the Grenache is always kept in concrete tanks, they utilized smaller barrels for their Syrah. While they produced two seriously good 2014 Châteauneuf du Papes, their 2015s are blockbusters that I’ll certainly be buying!" Robert Parker 92 Points

"Vivid ruby-red. Sharply focused red fruit, spicecake and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of dusty minerals and white pepper. Lively, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering silky raspberry and floral pastille flavors that deepen as the wine opens up. Shows very good focus and energy on the gently tannic finish, which leaves behind hints of succulent herbs and red berries." Josh Raynolds 90-92 Points
