2020 Alain Graillot Blanc Crozes-Hermitage
Winemaker Notes: A combination of tank and barrel fermentation was used to provide both creaminess and intense minerality. The resulting wine is rich with a full-bodied palate that supports creamy flavors of apricot, yellow peach, honey, yellow apple and citrus blossom.
Alain harvests by hand and works organically, employing whole-cluster fermentation and aging the wines primarily in 1-to-3 year old barrels purchased from some of the top estates in Burgundy. In great years, he makes tiny quantities of a barrel selection knows as “La Guiraude,” a rare and spectacular wine. Graillot’s wines are structured, but still very appealing and approachable in their youth, and their longevity is truly remarkable… These are must-haves for any serious Northern Rhone fan.
