$69.99
Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)
Graillot's top Crozes, made from a selection of top barrrels and released one year later. It is a rare and special treat to pull an old bottle of this from the cellar and watch how well it stands up against top Northern Rhones. A must-have for any serious Northern Rhone cellar, but it can be pretty hard to find!

What exactly does it mean to be a reference point wine? Is it just a synonym for "good" or "really good?" Does it mean, "old and established" or "expensive and difficult to find?"

In Crozes-Hermitage, there is only one reference point: Alain Graillot.

Clearly, then, "reference point" does not mean old, for Graillot has only been around since 1985. It also does not mean expensive: Graillot's Crozes-Hermitage remains one of the best values in the Northern Rhône, in just about every vintage.

Graillot’s wines are clean, pure and polished. They are delicious young, so it's tempting to think of them as modern. Yet, peek in the cellar, and you find nothing but tradition. They work with whole clusters and avoid new barriques, for example. It is through precision, good hygiene, and obsessive work in the fields that Graillot achieves these beautiful wines.
