95 Pts Wine Spectator
Juicy in feel, with a compact, well-built core of blackberry, black currant and plum paste flavors, infused liberally with licorice snap and apple wood notes. A tarry hint underscores the finish, though the fruit stays dominant and driven throughout. Very solid. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2038. 200 cases made, 90 cases imported. - JM

The two special cuvÃ©es are some of the gems in the vintage. The 2017 ChÃ¢teauneuf Du Pape Les Gallimardes comes from one of the great sites in the southern part of the appellation and is just about all Grenache (thereâs some very old vine Syrah, which struggles in this hot terroir). While not up to the out of this world 2016, it has a beautiful bouquet of cassis, kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, garrigue, and peppery herbs. Deep, full-bodied, and powerful on the palate, it has ultra-fine tannins as well as loads of character. Itâs going to drink brilliantly for 15 years or more.
This is all ~100 year old Grenache and Syrah from a single vineyard in CDP and the wine is absolutely drop dead gorgeous!
"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.â - Robert Parker
Domaine Giraud is certainly on the rise, crafting perfect wines in the 2015 and 2017 vintages! 2017 is a worthy successor with grapes of impeccable quality. Unfortunately, yields were way down so there is very little of this wine available!
Les Galimardes is one of their top cuvees coming from all 100+ vines from this exclusive Lieu-Dit. The terroir here is mostly red clay and gravel which is ideally suited to high quality Grenache and Syrah!
