2011 Giraud Les Grenaches De Pierre Chateauneuf Du Pape

"The limited production cuvee (300 cases) of 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre is made from 100% Grenache. It emerges from a vineyard planted in sandy soils near Pignan and Rayas, bordered on the east by La Crau. A sensational cuvee, it is a candidate for one of the wine of the vintage. It boasts super-rich black raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with a note of incense and a sappy character that comes from these ancient head-pruned Grenache vines. Sensational concentration along with a wealth of fruit, extract and glycerin make for a remarkable wine that transcends the vintage quality. Drink it over the next decade or more." [+]
