“For many wine lovers this is the touchstone producer of Crozes-Hermitage, and the 2018s definitely perform in the top tier of the appellation."-Josh Raynolds, Vinous “The Graillot family continues to release traditional, age-worthy, classic wines under their family label. Northern Rhône doesn’t get any more Northern Rhône than these releases and they’ve done well in 2018.” -Jeb Dunnuck VM: 93 – “Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of ripe dark berries and candied violet show outstanding clarity and lift. At once rich and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy blackberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that slowly turn sweeter on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity on the long, penetrating finish, which features well-judged tannins and lingering floral and spice notes.”
