Syrah/Shiraz from Rhone, France

Cellar/Tasting Notes
Alain Graillot founded his domaine in Crozes-Hermitage in 1985, and rapidly became one of the most in-demand producers in the Northern Rhone for his exuberant, robust, and complete Syrah-based wines. Graillot’s wines are structured, but still very appealing and approachable in their youth, and their longevity is truly remarkable. These are must-haves for any serious Northern Rhone fan.

The 2012 Crozes Hermitage is 100% Syrah from his 18 ha of vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage. The soils are gravel and old alluvium. All grapes are all hand harvested and fermented with stems and utilize pump overs to integrate oxygen into the wine.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92
"Inky ruby. Pungent, deeply scented aromas of black raspberry, cassis, black pepper and violet. Fruity, supple and sweet, with energetic red and dark berry flavors and a suggestion of candied licorice. Finishes with gentle grip and spicy thrust, the violet note echoing."
