Domaine Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
Alain Graillot’s Crozes-Hermitage is a dark ruby-red wine. It has a vividly expressive and deliciously sensual aroma of red and black fruits, white pepper, bacon, black olive and a touch of minerality. Equally appealing on the palate, the wine is soft and juicy with smooth tannins, delicious balance and a long, spicy finish. The flavours largely reflect the nose, however, Graillot’s signature of dense fruit and intense spice is clearly apparent. Graillot’s winemaking techniques are tailored to create wines that are expressive and enjoyable whilst young. However, his enormous talent means that these obviously appealing wines are also precise, complex, well-constructed masterpieces that can age alongside the best Rhône wines.
Alain Graillot is unquestionably one of the most respected winemakers in the Northern Rhône. This is all the more impressive given that he only began to make wine in 1985, when he swapped a career in the chemical industry for formal winemaking training in Burgundy and mentorship from the great Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac!
He began his domaine in the Northern Rhône with a few rented vines and now owns about 20 hectares of vineyard, mostly in Crozes-Hermitage. Graillot produces appealing, enjoyable and sensibly priced wines; however, he remains ferociously committed to quality. He farms his vineyards entirely by hand and only uses organic methods, simply because he believes that this combination of techniques produces the very best wine.
