User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape les Gallimardes Domaine Giraud 95rr Premier

Winemaker's Notes:

"Always a powerful wine, the 2009 Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Gallimardes is a rock star in the vintage and is showing every bit as good out of bottle as it did out of tank. A blend of 90% tank aged, very old vine Grenache and 10% barrel aged Syrah, the wine yields straight-up fantastic, classic aromas of red fruits, black currant, licorice, rolled stones, and subtle wild flower-like notes on the nose. This is followed by a powerful, rich wine that‟s loaded with sweet fruit, a full, concentrated mid-palate, and sound structure on the finish. There‟s a lot of ripeness here, but the wine stays fresh and light on the palate. It should drink superbly over the coming 15 years...95" RR 9/11 "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Gallimardes has all the same characteristics, but is more forward and on a faster evolutionary track. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is not quite as opaque as the 2010's, and its bouquet includes smoky, roasted meat notes intertwined with kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice, pepper and layer upon layer of glycerin-imbued black cherry and black currant fruit. This almost larger than life, spectacular Chateauneuf should age effortlessly for two decades...95" WA 10/11
