Beschrijving

Morstein: Wij werden geraakt door de puurheid en finesse van de wijnen van Giraud. Daarom zijn we gestart met het importeren van deze bijzondere Rhone-wijnen. Het werk in de wijngaard gebeurt op een perfectionistisch en biologisch-dynamische manier.  Grote klasse!

Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate: “Even Giraud’s entry-level 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape exudes elegance. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, it’s full-bodied but silky, with lovely tension between ripe cherries and delicate notes of roses and tea leaves. It should be approachable upon release yet drink well for a decade or more.” 92-94/100 pts

Jeb Dunnuck: “The normal blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is more medium to full-bodied and shows the ripe, sexy, sunny style in its spicy, peppery, garrigue-laced aromas and flavors. It’s not going to match the 2016, but it’s an outstanding Châteauneuf-du-Pape I’d be happy to have in the cellar.” 91-93/100 pts

Wine Spectator: “The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition offers an intense raspberry pâte de fruit core, with alluring incense and black tea notes that give it some elegance. The tannins are prevalent throughout, but the impression is silky and pure.”
