An old favorite - haven't had this for a few vintages. Bright red fruits, cracked pepper, resin, sage, dried herbs, medium bodied with grainy tannins. Very consistent every year. Delicious and rustic in a good way.

A little more tannic tonight, but it might just be me and a lack of food!

That's the jam right there. I wanna try some of this with some age. So elegant.

Graillot has changed my perception of Crozes-Hermitage permanently, though I won't forget those that I tried before that were insipid, weak examples. This shows everything I love in Syrah from the peppery, meaty and floral nose down to the palate of medium+ body and acidity, with finely firm tannin that should mellow more with age as this is barely 2 years old. If you don't know Syrah or feel like you have not "gotten it" yet this is your huckleberry! #graillot #crozes

Concrete fermented, 100% whole cluster, mix of 1-3 year old barrels, 30 year old vines. Pure fruit, a bit of underripe(?) green/menthol. Lacked a bit of weight in the middle. Way better at hour 40 than hour 1.

The appellation may be modest, but the wine certainly isn't. This is completely open for business with fresh blackberry notes out in front of the structure. Lush on the palate with a full bodied, yet elegant character. Savory aromatics are bookended with similar notes on the back of the palate. While this shows primary, big fruit- a short decant or another year or two in the bottle would bring some complexity forward, but very difficult not to enjoy right now.
