Cotes Du Rhone Le Grenaches de Sixte Domaine Giraud 2012 (750ML)
92 WA
"Even better, and a special cuvee made for importer Eric Solomon, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Les Grenaches des Sixte Vieilles Vignes is 100% Grenache, from sandy soils in Lirac, that’s age one-third in 5-year-old demi-muids and two-thirds in concrete tanks. Every bit as good as the 2011, it dishes out gorgeous blackberry, licorice and assorted herb qualities to go with medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a seamless finish. Enjoy it over the coming 3-5 years. Drink now-2019...92" 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."
