2010 Domaine Giraud Tradition  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

I do not know where I’ve been for the past few years, because I was not aware of the level of wine coming from Domaine Giraud. Consulted by Philippe Cambie, this is one of the hottest new estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. Not only is this absolutely delicious, it sells for more than a fair price for a wine of this quality. Packed with sweet fresh, jammy berries, cherry liqueur, gariggue and peppery, black raspberries, this beauty is already delivering the goods.
