A rare bottling of white Crozes-Hermitage form one of the region's top producers. 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne grown with organic practices. Fermentation is with indigenous yeasts, no malolactic conversion. Half aged in 1 year old Burgundy barrels, the rest is aged in tank
From the mouth of the importer (Skurnik):
"Alain Graillot founded his domaine in Crozes-Hermitage in 1985, and rapidly became one of the most in-demand producers in the Northern Rhone for his exuberant, robust, and complete Syrah-based wines. Alain owns 50 acres of 30-year-old Crozes-Hermitage vines on the flat alluvial plain between the Rhône and Isère rivers, in well-draining soils of sand, gravel, and stones. He also has two tiny parcels in St. Joseph, from which he makes a slightly fresher, more early-drinking wine than the remarkable Crozes-Hermitage that constitutes the majority of his production."
