"The 2010 Crozes-Hermitage revealed lots of minerality, excellent concentration of red and black currants as well as cedar, licorice and black olive characteristics, and medium to full body. It should turn out to be a crisp, elegant Crozes with a Burgundian sensibility."

Item Description

"The 2010 Crozes-Hermitage revealed lots of minerality, excellent concentration of red and black currants as well as cedar, licorice and black olive characteristics, and medium to full body. It should turn out to be a crisp, elegant Crozes with a Burgundian sensibility."

" 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. Alain owns 50 acres of 30-year-old Crozes-Hermitage vines on the flat alluvial plain between the Rhone and Isvre rivers, in well-draining soils of sand, gravel, and stones. He also has two tiny parcels in St. Joseph, from which he makes a slightly fresher, more early-drinking wine than the remarkable Crozes-Hermitage that constitutes the majority of his production.

Alain harvests by hand and works organically, employing whole-cluster fermentation and aging the wines primarily in 1-to-3 year old barrels purchased from some of the top estates in Burgundy. In great years, he makes tiny quantities of a barrel selection knows as La Guiraude, a rare and spectacular wine. Graillots 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." ~ Winery notes
