Just Tasted by Vinous and the Zachys Team: A Star of Crozes-Hermitage and the Master of Syrah Delivers Must-Haves for Any Serious Northern Rhône Fan - From the 97-Point Vintage!
“Alain Graillot has been the spiritual and qualitative leader of the new generation of young wine producers...He consistently produces some of the finest, most reasonably priced wines of the northern Rhône.” – Robert Parker
The excitement for 2015 Rhône continues with a star of Crozes-Hermitage! The Zachys team just uncorked a bottle of the 2015 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage (92+ZBT) and could not wait to offer this one out to our Rhône buyers. After a stint at Domaine Dujac, Rhône native Alain Graillot began making wine in Crozes-Hermitage in 1985 and quickly became one of the stars of the appellation. Today his son Maxime has taken over, and in the highly anticipated 2015 vintage, we think he’s delivered some of the estate’s best to date! Not to be missed is the special barrel selection, 2015 Crozes-Hermitage La Guiraude, a rarity only produced in select vintages that has been one of Robert Parker’s “top wines of the vintage” year after year. Unfortunately, only a few barrels are made and Zachys received just 12 bottles and three magnums.
Special pricing for these limited 2015 Northern Rhône releases is valid through April 25th or while wine remains available.
All my best,
