Breathtaking dark fruit flavors lead to a stunning display of fig boysenberry coulis blueberry paste and anise-steeped black currant flavors all backed by ganache and black tea. The muscle shows up on the pure and balanced finish characterized by tarry grip and drive. Best from 2015 through 2030. 1300 cases made. - J.M. (Wine Spectator Advance)

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition (made from the same blend as the 2011) is incredibly rich, concentrated and complex. The best value in their portfolio, it offers a dark plum/purple color along with copious notes of garrigue, pepper, licorice, black raspberries and kirsch. A super, full-bodied Chateauneuf with terrific purity and palate presence, it can be enjoyed over the next 15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Possessing loads of potential and a decadently ripe profile the 2010 Domaine Giraud Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition will most likely eclipse the '09. Showing thick blackberry liqueur licorice and meaty characteristics on the nose the wine is very rich and full on the palate while at the same time holding on to a balanced fresh feel. There's real depth here and this will most likely benefit from short to mid-term cellaring and age gracefully for 10-12 years. 91-93+ - Jeb Dunnuck

Vivid ruby. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis and dried flowers, with a spicy topnote. Silky and seamless in texture, with strong finishing punch and lingering dark berry and spice notes.

Silky and seamless in texture, with strong finishing punch and lingering dark berry and spice notes. Approachable now, with soft tannins that play nicely with this wine's plump, velvety fruit. -- Josh Raynolds

An array of berry fruit is topped with slightly briary, leafy elements. The tannins are ripe to the point of creaminess, giving this solid performer a sense of warmth and lushness. Drink it over the next several years... An array of berry fruit is topped with slightly briary, leafy elements. The tannins are ripe to the point of creaminess, giving this solid performer a sense of warmth and lushness. Drink it over the next several years while waiting for some of the more structured cuvées to mature.
