This Cornas wine showcases a vibrant core of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. It is complemented by smooth and integrated tannins, peppery undertones, and subtle oak influence. The wine offers a harmonious balance of flavors, with the fruit character taking center stage. Maxime Graillot substantive work has been done on poor lands and over a vineyards in poor condition to bring it back to life. Everything had to be done up: plowing pruning planting and working of an environmentally friendly manner without use of any chemicals. 100% Syrah from three parcels - 25% Les Chaillots (20-years-old), 50% La Côte (80- to 90-years-old) and 25% La Sabarotte (35-years-old). Vineyards lie on steep slopes aligning the Rhône River that are rich in granite. After several days of maceration, the wine undergoes a 20- to 30-day fermentation period including malolactic in a combination of oak barrels (5% to 10% new) ranging in formats and concrete tank. Aside from one or two pumpovers to homogenize or aerate, extraction is done entirely by hand with punch downs once or twice a day. ABV 13.5%
