"A ripe, gutsy style, with a solid core of plum sauce, warm cherry and raspberry preserves framed liberally with singed vanilla and dried anise notes. Alluring flashes of black tea and iron show through the finish. Best from 2018 through 2024. 20 cases imported."

"Lurid ruby. Pungent, smoke-accented dark fruit preserve, olive and floral scents, along with a cracked pepper flourish that builds as the wine opens up. Coats the palate with sweet blackberry, cherry and candied licorice flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Supple tannins lend shape to a smooth, fruity, persistent finish that echoes the olive and dark berry notes."

100% Syrah

Fruit is drawn predominantly from a 20-year-old parcel on the slopes of the great Cornas lieu dit, Les Chaillots, with the balance from old-vine parcels in La Sabarotte and La Côte. All are hillside sites where the soils are very rich in granite. The vines have always been organically managed, and the owner/grower is a respected friend of the Graillots. Maxime Graillot's and Thomas Schmittel have the final say as to when the grapes are harvested and are able to send their own team in to do the picking.

The wine is crafted à la the de lises Crozes though the whole bunch varies between 10-30% depending on the vintage and the wine is cellared before release to align fruit and tannin.
