Even though Alain Graillot has been making wine in this region for two decades, he has quickly established a reputation as the rising star of the appellation. His savvy winemaking has also helped the once flagging reputation of Crozes-Hermitage (sometimes called 'junior Hermitage') by lifting quality standards across the board.

100% Syrah from Graillot's 18 ha of vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage. The soils are gravel and old alluvium. Like all of his wines, grapes are hand-harvested and farmed organically.

Graillot ferments with stems for added structure and complexity. Additionally, he uses pump-overs in order to carefully integrate oxygen into the wine.

Aged in french Oak Barrel.
