2020 Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Rouge

For the first time in a few years, we have a small quantity of the Crozes-Hermitage Rouge and Blanc from Alain Graillot which has been made by Alains’s sons, Maxime and Antoine since 2008.  In France’s Northern Rhone Valley, there are few names as revered as Graillot.  It was in 1985 that the legendary Alain Graillot, who after working with the venerable Jacques Seysses at Domaine Dujac, came back to his home in Crozes-Hermitage to start his own domaine.  All the work is still completely the same as it ever was; hand-harvesting, organic farming, whole-cluster fermentation, and aging the wines primarily in 1-to-3 year old barrels purchased from some of the top estates in Burgundy.
