Les Girard du Boucou Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Robert Parker: 88-90pts. (Oct 2012): “The 2011 is a sleeper of the vintage, a delicious wine with loads of complex floral notes intermixed with new saddle leather, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and plenty of black currants and cherries. It has real intensity, medium to full body, and is certainly an over-performer of the vintage. The front-end loaded characteristics of the 2011 also make this wine a juicy proposition for drinking over the next 7-8 years [2012-2020].”
57% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 20% Counoise, Syrah, Cinsault, Muscardin, Terret, and Vaccarese.
