Gorgeous, starting off with warm ganache and Turkish coffee aromas, followed by dense, fleshy layers of fig cake, steeped plum and warm blackberry confiture. Shows lots of juicy energy through the finish, with anise and singed juniper accents adding range. Cellar first, then enjoy the smoke show. Best from 2020 through 2045. — J.M.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, November 2017
The blend of the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is 60% Grenache and a hefty 40% Mourvèdre. Yes, it's chocolaty ripe, but it also boasts enlivening hints of thyme and rosemary along with brighter notes... The blend of the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is 60% Grenache and a hefty 40% Mourvèdre. Yes, it's chocolaty ripe, but it also boasts enlivening hints of thyme and rosemary along with brighter notes of cherries. The tannins are powerful yet supple, giving this big wine a sense of velvety elegance on the lengthy finish. Wow. - Joe Czerwinski

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, March 2017
(94-96 points) Lurid ruby-red. A complex, explosively perfumed bouquet of ripe red and blue fruit, Moroccan spice and floral oil aromas is enlivened by a vibrant mineral quality that builds as the wine opens up. Sweet... (94-96 points) Lurid ruby-red. A complex, explosively perfumed bouquet of ripe red and blue fruit, Moroccan spice and floral oil aromas is enlivened by a vibrant mineral quality that builds as the wine opens up. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that show outstanding clarity and back-end power. The mineral and floral components drive the extremely long, sappy finish, which is given shape by smooth tannins. This wine's balance of power and finesse is mighty impressive. - Josh Raynolds

The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as the normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre. It offers more roasted meats and spice aromatics, as well as gorgeous red and black fruits... The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as the normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre. It offers more roasted meats and spice aromatics, as well as gorgeous red and black fruits, full-bodied richness, building, ripe tannin and a balanced, seamless style. It's a big wine, yet stays graceful and pure, with a great finish. It will be at its best from 2020-2030.
