"55% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah from the Serres lieu-dit. 100% whole-cluster fermentation. Aged 18 months, 50% in cement and 50% in 600L used barrels." —importer
"Dense for the vintage, with a core of fig and blackberry fruit that has melded with ample pepper, tobacco and lavender notes. This has plenty in reserve, though the long, juicy finish lets everything play out, leaving a light sanguine echo at the very end. Should age well. Best from 2017 through 2029. 750 cases made." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"Tasted from barrel, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud incorporates a splash of Syrah in 2014 and is a blend of 55% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah. Aged 18 months in mostly two- to three-year-old barrels, it has lots of white pepper, cedary spice, plum and darker berry fruit on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, lively and fresh, yet with a rockin’ mid-palate and finish, it’s a terrific 2014 that will come together nicely with a year or two in bottle." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Full ruby. Deeply perfumed, smoke-tinged aromas of cherry compote, boysenberry, anise and garrigue, complicated by a potpourri flourish. Juicy, expansive and appealingly sweet, offering intense red and blue fruit liqueur flavors and a touch of floral pastilles. Youthful tannins build slowly on an impressively long, focused finish that leaves a sexy lavender note behind." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
