ICON WINE ALERT! The Graillot wines are the holy grail of Crozes-Hermitage, the less-heralded hillsides surrounding the premiere Hermitage zone where comparable bottles go for hundreds of dollars. Alain Graillot started this domaine in Crozes-Hermitage in 1985, and he has rapidly transformed into one of the most desirable producers in the Northern Rhone for his vivacious, peppery, and thick-shouldered Syrah-based wines. This tightly allocated producer is the perfect introduction to Northern Rhône if you haven't had it since the wines are still so well-priced, but the quality level is firmly in the collectible and cellar-worthy categories.
The "La Guiraude" is only produced in the greatest vintages. The wine is chosen after Alain has tasted every barrel at the end of the vintage's production. You can expect tremendous density and power in this wine for the next 30 years.
