Product Details

Domaine Giraudon Tentation Red 2015 France

$35.95

Domaine Giraudon Tentation Red 2015 – Variety here is Gamay Saint Romain, a smaller berried variant of Gamay, allowing a higher skin to juice ratio.  Hand harvested, as are all of this estate’s wines, and sees carbonic maceration and fermentation in concrete tanks.  This wouldn’t be out of place at all in a cru Beaujolais lineup – again, the slurpability factor associated with Beaujolais is high here – think violets, blueberries, red and black currants, balanced by a captivating rocky core.  Not a massively tannic style but the minerals certainly give depth and interest to the wine’s structure.

“Cherry pip, lipstick, red currants, sweet spice in perfume. Sloshy textured, joyous stuff, fresh with bright, berry fruit character and crisp in fine, silty tannins. Easy going, just under medium weight red of vitality and high drinkability. A chill wouldn’t do it harm either. Drink up!” 90 points, Mike Bennie, Winefront
