Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage la Guiraude 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Denser, with more blackberry fruit such as well as hints of licorice and cassis, the medium to full-bodied, wonderfully pure, dense 2009 Crozes-Hermitage is a winner and a big-time sleeper of the vintage. This rich, full, multi-layered wine should drink well for 10-15 years. 2009 is Alain Graillot’s finest vintage since 1990...90" WA 2/11

Intensely balsamic on the nose with spicy floral notes, rampant violets, intense pepper and sweet spices. This is aromatic insanity! Light bodied and high acid for sure, with very soft tannins in a dry, austere, focused and crisp package. This is brilliant It’s so lean and sinewy it doesn’t strike me as particularly typical, but it’s got such great clarity that I love it. It’s going through a funky period I’m sure, but this is exciting to drink. Group’s sixth place wine, my first place. 92pts

Alain Graillot has 20 hectares in the Crozes-Hermitage. He has become one of the most sought after producers of the area, producing wines that are pure and balanced from the Syrah grape. Very small productions.
