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 (60% Grenache a whopping 35% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre) is aged in tank (the Grenache and Mourvedre) and oak (the Syrah).

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition (60% Grenache a whopping 35% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre) is aged in tank (the Grenache and Mourvedre) and oak (the Syrah). This impressive full-bodied dense purple-colored wine reveals plenty of sweet aromas of blackberries black raspberries licorice camphor and flowers. It should drink well for 15+ years.

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

Ripe dark berries on the nose with floral and herbal nuances adding complexity. Round sappy and smooth offering deep sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a hint of warmth on the back end. Finishes with very good power and length leaving dark fruit notes behind.
