Top 8 Northern Rhone Reds

5. Crozes-Hermitage Graillot (2010)

« Prev Next » 5 of 8
Average price: $35.00 from 3 stores
Rich and spicy on the nose with dark brambly fruit and incipient notes of black pepper, leather, violets and wood smoke all over a nice crushed granite base note. On entry, this is big and smooth with very fine, polished tannins and solid acidity keeping the broad palate impression lively and supporting sweet and sour wild berry fruit. The tannins build on the back end here, a little rustic and dusty, but this manages to retain an elegant, almost feminine feel. This will improve, particularly in light of Graillot’s track record. 88pts
