Domaine Alain Graillot is the undisputed king of Crozes-Hermitage. Having consistently produced an honest reflection of the Northern Rhône for 25 years, Alain’s son Maxime Graillot took over from him in 2008. The wines however are still made in an elegant, old-school style. Favouring savouriness and fragrance over oak and sweetness, whole bunch fermentation is key with the Graillot’s organically-farmed, old vine Syrah.

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.
