Chateauneuf du Pape les Gallimardes Domaine Giraud 2011 (750ML) FR Flag In Stock
Chateauneuf du Pape les Gallimardes Domaine Giraud 2011 (750ML)
94 WA
"Up with the top wines in the vintage, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Gallimardes (90% concrete aged Grenache and 10% barrel-aged Syrah, from 100-year-old vines) is a rich, hedonistic effort that oozes sweet black currants, cassis, crushed stone, leather and roasted meat-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, gorgeously textured, with fine tannin and an already accessible style, it’s one of the stars of the vintage and should not be missed. Drink now-2023...94" WA 10/13 "This is a terrific lineup of wines by the brother and sister team of Marie and Francois Giraud. Their 2011s are certainly near the top of the vintage, with the 2012s looking just as good. In addition to releasing stunning reds, this estate always produces a terrific white. Marie produced three red Chateauneufs in 2012, with no Les Gallimardes due to the tiny quantity. During my tasting, Marie commented on the rain in late September and the difficulty in deciding when to pick. Opting to wait until after the rain for the majority of their plots, this spread the harvest out over five weeks as opposed to the normal two weeks."
