Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2007
Average age of the vines: 25 years old (some of the Hermitage vines are now 80 years old) Soil : Around Pont de l'Isere, the soil is formed from alluvial deposits of sand, gravel, rocks and stones. Despite being flat, it drains exceedingly well. The Hermitage holdings are on hard granite slopes.
With attractive red-berry aromas a deep ruby/purple color and a palate of dark, plummy fruit, black-pepper, olives and moderate tannins, this is a forward drinking Syrah of great charm and value.
