Representing the essence of Provence, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre is a brilliant example of 100% Grenache from 100-year-old vines. After spending 18 months in concrete tanks prior to being bottled unfiltered, it boasts an exquisite nose of lavender, garrigue, kirsch liqueur, and black currants. The explosive aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, layered wine with velvety tannins as well as an opulent, multilayered texture. This sensational effort should drink well for 15-20 years. After selling wine to negociants for many years, this estate began to estate bottle in 1998. With the assistance of the brilliant Philippe Cambie, the wines have soared in quality, and Domaine Giraud is now one of the more exciting domaines in Chateauneuf du Pape.
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
'One of the most profound wines in the vintage is unquestionable the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee les Grenache de Pierre, which is 100% Grenache, from sandy soils in the la Crau lieu-dit, raised all in concrete tanks and bottled unfiltered. Its deep ruby color is followed by an incredible bouquet of black cherries, black raspberries, licorice, dried herbs and garrigue. Deep, layered, gorgeously concentrated and ultra-fine, with sweet, ripe tannin and an incredible elegance, drink this sensational juice anytime over the coming 10-15 years.'
