Domaine Giraud Chateauneuf-du-Pape Tradition 2010
Blend: 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre
Breathtaking dark fruit flavors lead to a stunning display of fig, boysenberry coulis, blueberry paste and anise-steeped black currant all backed by ganache and black tea. The muscle shows up on the pure and balanced finish, characterized by tarry grip and drive. Best from 2015 through 2030.
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition (made from the same blend as the 2011) is incredibly rich, concentrated and complex. The best value in their portfolio, it offers a dark plum/purple color along with copious notes of garrigue, pepper, licorice, black raspberries and kirsch. A super, full-bodied Chateauneuf with terrific purity and palate presence, it can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years.
Vivid ruby. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis and dried flowers, with a spicy topnote. Silky and seamless in texture, with strong finishing punch and lingering dark berry and spice notes. Approachable now, with soft tannins that play nicely with this wine's plump, velvety fruit.
