A 1.2 hectare plot planted to equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault on granite soils. The grapes are hand-harvested and whole bunch fermented using native yeasts in concrete vats. The wine is then transferred to 1500L, used French oak barrels for 9 months before bottled, un-fined, unfiltered and with no additional sulfur.
A bright and lifted nose, despite the wine's dark, almost sappy concentration. Aromas of red plum, cherry, blackberry, violet, cracked pepper and touch of black olive. The palate's vibrancy grabs you straight away with pure, dark fruits and spice wrapped around a dense core of granitic minerals and snappy acidity. Refined, sophisticated AND just so much fun to drink...Graillot for a song.
