Excellent energy, textural, round mid-palate of lovely depth baking spice, hints of mandarin rind, a little pear, excellent shape and superb finish. Fresh green herby hint. Nice little cleansing grab at the back and then the fruit continues on. Layered. Fun vino.
A superb Marsanne – Roussane! ... ⅔rds the price of Graillot's & arguably better.

The white of the Northern Rhone offer up just as much intrigue as the reds! Alain Graillot's 2018 white Crozes-Hermitage is a deliciously pulpy and layered white Rhone that we're more than glad to be able to offer once again. The wine is made from a blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented in 600-litre demi-muid.

Erin Cannon-Chave and Jean-Louis Chave’s semi-négociant operation produces the Selection range outside the wines of the family estate.
