Domaine Giraud Prémices 2015 (France: Rhône, Southern)

Name Domaine Giraud Prémices 2015
Varietal ChÂteauneuf-Du-Pape
Region France: Rhône, Southern
Notes "A pure, elegant style, with an alluring raspberry puree note leading the way, while light blood orange, red currant and plum fruit flavors follow close behind. Nuances of incense, mulling spices and rooibos tea flitter throughout. The finish is silky and persistent." (Wine Spectator) "The 2015 is a perfumed, elegant, sweetly fruited effort that has lots strawberries, framboise, licorice and crushed flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s a polished and seamless as they come, and a seriously good effort to drink over the coming 4-6 years." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Vivid ruby-red. Sharply focused red fruit, spicecake and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of dusty minerals and white pepper. Lively, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering silky raspberry and floral pastille flavors that deepen as the wine opens up. Shows very good focus and energy on the gently tannic finish, which leaves behind hints of succulent herbs and red berries." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous)
