Variety: Marsanne and Roussanne
Every wine region in the world has its benchmark producers. These are the producers that year after year release top tier wines with a consistent voice that is evident in each bottle. These producers are an inspiration to younger producers throughout the world. Alain Graillot is a classic example, presiding over 50 acres of 30+ year-old vines in Crozes-Hermitage, just off the powerful hill of Hermitage in the Northern Rhone. Graillot has always focused on the pursuit of greatness. Quality comes first.
Marsanne and Roussanne come together in this intense white blend to be entirely representative of its home in the rocky gravel soils of the northern Rhone. The two varieties together ooze of almond and beeswax textures, complemented further by its aging in Burgundy barrels.
