Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf du Pape Tradition Syrah Grenache Mourvédre Rhone Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"A candidate for wine of the vintage is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre. The essence of kirsch liqueur in that Rayas/Chateau Lafleur style, this wine has great intensity, full-bodied power, a seamless, silky integration of acidity and tannin, and a massive but light to the touch mouthfeel, this stunningly brilliant wine tastes like the Musigny of Chateauneuf du Pape...95" WA 10/08

The 'domaine' saw the light of day thanks to Pierre and Mireille's zeal and two families coming together. Pierre Giraud is the son of a long line of winegrowers going back more than six centuries. Descendant of the Arrnenier family, he's always tended his vineyard with loving care. The Buou family owned the village distillery for generations; Mireille has always worked alongside her husband helping to expand the vineyard. Now she looks after the day-to-day running of the Domaine. The story begins in 1974 when Pierre and Mireille took on 4ha (10 acres) of vines as tenant farmers. For 12 years, the domaine would grow little by little through purchasing pieces of rented land. In 1981. Pierre and Mireille turned the family distillery into a winemaking and barrel-ageing cellar. That same year, the domaine 's first vintage would be born. In 1987. the running of the Armenier family's vineyard was handed down to their children. Pierre and Mireille took care of 8ha (20 acres) of 100 year old vines found on the Crau plateau, Les Terres Blanches ('White Earth'), the Gallimardes and the sandy soils around Pignan in the Rayas area. In 1998. Pierre was ready to pass on his love of the vine and wine to his children. Marie and Francois took on the estate hand-in-hand. Under their parents' watchful eye. they devoted themselves to tending vines and winemaking. They focused their efforts on selecting parcel by parcel, doing minimal treatments, upgrading their cellar to make finer and finer wines while respecting family traditions. Read less
