Description

The 2011 Argonne is one of the most impressive wines of this challenging vintage. Ample and creamy, as all the Giraud wines are, the 2011 offers plenty of depth and resonance. Lemon confit, mint, sage, white pepper, ash, crushed rocks and white flowers give the 2011 striking freshness that provides an attractive counterpoint to a core of rich, resonant fruit. The 2011 is powerful and explosive in the glass, with none of the green notes that afflict so many 2011s.
