Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "Atypically big, rich and velvety, the 2019 Crozes Hermitage emanates from a vintage whose yields were cut in half by hail. Bottled in March 2021, it delivers rolling waves of ripe black cherries, tinged with understated herbal notes and a long, luxuriously textured finish. (JC)"

About Alain Graillot

Alain Graillot was a renowned winemaker in the Northern Rhone Valley of France, highly regarded for his exceptional Syrah wines. Despite starting with no prior winemaking experience, he quickly rose to prominence and became one of the most sought-after winemakers in the region. Alain was mentored by renowned winemakers Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Patrick Bize of Domaine Simon Bize et Fils, who influenced his signature style of fermenting Syrah whole cluster, resulting in earthy and savory red wines.

Alain's hard work and charisma were instrumental in transforming Crozes-Hermitage from a producer of bulk wine to one of the world's most respected wine regions. Despite his passing, his legacy continues through his son Maxime, who continues to produce Syrah wines of exceptional quality.

One of Alain's most sought-after wines is La Guiraude, a barrel selection made in extremely small quantities only in the best years. For any serious Syrah fan, owning a bottle of Alain Graillot's wine is an essential addition to their collection.
