Title A Few Bottles of Domaine Giuliani's 'Les Galets Jeanne' Premium Châteauneuf du Pape Now Available! 
Bulletin Untitled Page

Dear Arthur’s Cellar Wine Club Member:

At time of writing there are 22 bottles of Domaine Giuliani’s splendid 2015 ‘Les Galets Jeanne’ available at This premium Châteauneuf du Pape is cradted in only the finest vintages (like 2015) and costs not much more than other producers’ run of the mill bottlings. Please let me know if you would like me to place your order for you.

2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge ‘Les Galets Jeanne’ - 14.5% Alc./Vol. LCBO Product No. 492339         $52.00 the bottle

This premium Châteauneuf du Pape, (produced only in top vintages), comes from specially selected parcels of vines averaging well over fifty years of age. Only the best fruit is allowed to mature and the vines are pruned regularly to permit proper ventilation in order to avoid disease and rot. The blend is 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre. Eighty percent is matured in tanks and the remainder in small oak casks, all for a minimum of eighteen months. It is deep red with glints of purple and has a vibrant nose of cherries, black currants, raspberry and strawberry jam and a hint of Provençal herbs and vanilla. These aromas carry through in the mouth to be joined by notes of caramel, pepper and roasted coffee. It is full-bodied, very well-balanced and most welcoming. The tannins are soft and melt away as the finish lingers pleasantly. This Giuliani tour de force will go brilliantly with magret de canard, wild game and all roasts. Preferably, you won’t broach it for five years or so, but as Oscar Wilde wrote, “I can resist anything except temptation.” It will keep for many years thereafter. A marvellous premium Ch.9 for the price of a regular bottling.

Please pass this note on to anyone you think would enjoy an absolutely terrific Châteauneuf du Pape from a great year.

PS: The LCBO is once again receiving new orders for We have just placed our next order for the very good 2016 and 2017 wines from Domaine Roger Sabon. Watch for them in about three months.
