Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée les Grenache de Pierre 2001

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

An artisanal wine that harks back to another era, showing wet earth. Almost funky, with raspberry jam, mineral, stone, saddle leather and citrus complexity. Plenty to like, with no obvious oak to interfere with this distinctive version of the local terroir. Not imported into the U.S. Drink now through 2010.

The 2001 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape reveals a character similar to its older sibling, with additional texture, structure, and delineation (from the cooler harvest conditions). Sweet dried Provencal herb, roasted meat, ground pepper, and kirsch liqueur aromas jump from the glass of this deep ruby-colored offering. It possesses excellent texture, a big, chewy, succulent mouthfeel, and a spicy, long finish. It may deserve an outstanding score. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2013.

The 2001 Chateauneuf Du Papersquo;s dark/ruby plum color is accompanied by delicious, sexy aromas of ground pepper, kirsch liqueur, roasted peanuts, and lavender. Full-bodied, broad, and expansive, it is a succulent, hedonistic fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 7ndash;8 years.
