Looking like the star of the show, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, and comes from three separate terroirs: Les Serres, Le Cristia and Le Bois de la Ville. Fermented with 100% whole-cluster and aged 18 months in demi-muid, it offers fabulous aromatics (currants, garrigue, roasted meats and bouquet garni), medium to full-bodied richness and a layered, silky style. As with the Reserve Auguste Favier, the acidity is elevated, and will be something to watch, yet I think this will come together nicely once in bottle. Short-term cellaring should be the name of the game.

Winespectator (96)

Shows impressive depth and range for the vintage, with layer upon layer of steeped fig, crushed plum and warm raspberry preserve flavors forming the core, all backed by Turkish coffee, licorice root and roasted alder notes. The finish is long and authoritative, presenting a beguiling whiff of shiso leaf at the very end. A superb effort
