Northern Rhone, France
Son of famed winemaker Alain Graillot, this cuvee is only a couple of kilomenters from his father's vines. This Syrah is refined and aromatic due to the soil being full of gravel and alluvial stones, low in clay and fast draining. The vines are organically managed, grapes were handpicked and natural ferment, 20%-30% was whole bunched. Fruit-forward, pretty aromas of violets, blackberries, plum and chocolates with grainy tannins.
