Alain Graillot is the perfect picture of the pragmatic, unpretentious winemaker who can make some real delights. Established on the pure-pebble and gravel flood plains, he produces sublime Crozes-Hermitage wines. Designed for immediate drinking as well as for ageing, they are made from Syrah with a remarkable finesse and structure. Today, his son, Maxime, supervises the wine making. Year after year, he continues the consistency and quality established by Alain Graillot, making him one of the most reliable and high-quality Crozes-Hermitage producers.
