Pierre and Mireille Giraud were distillers by trade, but in the mid-1970s they made the move into grape production, renting 4 hectares of vineyards for the purpose. In 1998, they bottled their first wine: a cuvée of Les Gallimardes. The estate is now run by Pierre and Mireille Giraud's children Marie and Francois. The estate now runs 17 hectares of vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape split between more than 60 parcels.

"The biggest, most unctuous and sexy of the three cuvées from this first estate, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Gallimardes is 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, all from the Gallimardes lieu-dit located in the southern part of the appellation. It reveals a healthy ruby color as well as classic, Provencal notes of dried herbs, sweet black cherries, black licorice and crushed rock. Big, full-bodied, beautifully textured and mouth-filling, count me a fan. I’d happily drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade." Jeb Dunnock
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
