The Wine
Bright violet. Penetrating, spice-tinged scents of fresh blackberry, licorice, smoky minerals and violet. Silky and lively on the palate; flavors of fresh dark berries and spicecake show a suave floral quality. Smooth, forward and appealingly sweet, with a fine dusting of closing tannins and very good, spicy persistence.

Alain Graillot has been producing wines reflecting his integrity and high standards since 1985. Born in the Northern Rhone, he left to pursue a career in business, but returned home to his dream of creating great wines. Without the opportunity of stepping into an existing family winery, Alain undertook formal studies in Burgundy while seeking the guidance and inspiration of the best of the new generation of winemakers including Jacques Seysses of Dominique Dujac. He has now some 15 ha in Crozes-Hermitage itself as well as 1 ha in St-Joseph. He matures his red wines in one year old french oak barrels from Burgundy.
