Dear Arthur’s Cellar Wine Club Member:
Domaine Giuliani’s 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge from the great 2015 Southern Rhône vintage is really quite sensational. I highly recomment you pop a bottle or six into your cellar. Please let me know if you would like me to order for you. Just let me know how many bottles and to which LCBO retail store you would like them deliver (or to your home for just an extra $12).
2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge – 15.0% Alc./Vol. LCBO Product No. 492321 $42.75/$256.50 for 6
The 2015 Domaine Giuliani Châteauneuf du Pape is crafted from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre - from vines averaging over fifty years of age. It is a deep brick red colour and offers up aromas of strawberry and raspberry jam, cherries, cassis, dark chocolate, garrigue and Provençal herbs. In the mouth it is full, ample and quite divine. This magnificent Ch.9 simply screams out for a gigot d’agneau or prime rib of beef. You could drink it now, but be sure to give it a few hours in a decanter; it will last for a decade or more in a storage unit or cellar.
You can find all of our other wines that are currently available on LCBO.com here.
As you might know, we have another shipment of the very popular Domaine Giuliani 2016 ‘Les Notes de Louis’ Côtes du Rhône in regular bottles on the way. The winery has just informed us that they also have some magnums available at around $39 the magnum. If you or anybody you know is interested, please let me know how many you would like. If we have enough requests I’ll place the order … for delivery in about three months.
Please pass this note on to anyone you think would enjoy an absolutely terrific, well-priced Châteauneuf du Pape (is there anyone who wouldn’t?).
Jim, Hélène and Kate
