“Giraud” comes from the oldest vines in two parcels, les Serres and le Cristia. Les Serres is very warm and has the famous galets and gravel soil; Cristia has a sandy soil. A blend of 60% Grenache from 80-year-old vines, 35% Mourvèdre from 60-year-old vines, and 5% 65-year-old Syrah. 100% whole cluster fermentation in tronconical wood tanks. Aged for 18 months in 600L used barrels. This wine has a huge capacity to age. It’s the most structured of the Saint Prefert wines. Charles Giraud was Ferrando’s grandfather from her father’s side.
