"Light bright yellow. Tangerine, peach and white flowers on the fragrant nose, along with subtle honey and basil nuances. Sappy, expansive orchard and pit fruit flavors show very good concentration, velvety texture and a spicy jolt of candied ginger. Finishes smooth, long and subtly spicy, leaving an echo of pear nectar behind. I like this wine's blend of heft and energy."

2016 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Blanc
Alain Graillot

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: Roughly 80% Marsanne, 20% Roussanne.

FERMENTATION: Grapes are pressed upon arrival at the winery. After settling, about 50% of the must is fermented in barrel (1-year-old oak from top Burgundy producers such as Sauzet). The other 50% is given a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

The wine avoids malolactic to preserve the acidity and freshness.
