Alain Graillot

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

Brilliant nose! Classic N Rhône aromas—olives, meats, floral. Palate is fruit forward, big tannic undergirding, roasted meat, iron, big tannic finish. 2 hr decant. Drink or hold. Graillot has never failed us yet. — 7 days ago

Chiroubles Gamay 2018

A perfect Chiroubles which honors the appellation. Light, airy, sensual, feminine Beaujolais. Red fruits fragrances deciliously intoxicating but without prominence. Multiple vegetal / floral nuances. The finish is discreetly persistent with very delicate tannins.

Un Chiroubles parfait qui fait honneur à l’appellation. Beaujolais féminin, sensuel, léger et aérien. Fragrances de fruit rouges délicieusement enivrantes mais sans proéminence, avec multiples nuances végétales/florales. La finale est discrètement persistante sur des tanins d’une grande délicatesse.

Tres Vieilles Vignes Auxey-Duresses Pinot Noir 2014

The nose is perfumed, black fruit, very Pinot like as it is the case on the palate, fruit is ripe for a 2014, some structure along with good freshness and finesse that go hand in hand for this gorgeous bottle that was gone too fast.

Nez assez parfumé, fruits noirs et très pinot au nez tout comme en bouche, fruit assez mûr compte tenu du millésime, structure et finesse vont de pair, pur délice. 89-90

bel air Fleurie Gamay 2018

After the Chiroubles, I taste this second Cuvée from the Domaine; confirming the admirable know-how of these winegrowers who love a job well done. Biodynamic Fleurie which does justice to the appellation: nose of red fruits and cherries accompanied by rocky floral nuances and something that resembles peppermint. (Vintage effect?). The palate confirms this generosity, with a carbonic maceration that suits the Gamay grape so well, without being prominent here. The finish unfolds on roasted and typical sour cherry notes. It’s very greedy. Immediate pleasure at a very affordable price.

Après le Chiroubles, je goûte cette deuxième cuvée du Domaine; confirmant l’admirable savoir faire de ces vignerons amoureux du travail bien fait. Fleurie biodynamique qui fait honneur à l’appellation: nez sur les fruits rouges et griottes accompagné de roches nuances florales et quelque chose qui ressemblerait à la menthe poivrée. (Effet millésime?). La bouche confirme cette générosité, avec une macération carbonique qui sied si bien au cépage gamay, sans pour autant être proéminente ici. La finale se déploie sur des notes torréfiées et griottes typique. C’est très gourmand. plaisir immédiat à prix très abordable.

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2012

The last bottle of my 2012 Vosne Romanée from Alain Hudelot Noëllat and its a wonderful show that it manage to put up. Like a grand dame in its golden years bit with a hell of a spirit its displaying evolving characters of dried strawberries, rose petals, blood orange and menthol that is backed up by a prominent choir of nutmeg, clove, truffles, wet stones and forrest floor. Fresh palate with very present but smooth tannins, an expansive palate as the encore slowly fades out in a very respectful and balanced finish.
Day 2 tasting and its pumped up, more nuanced, defined and dresses up to its teeth in elegance. The last bottle of six will leave its mark for sure. Divine!
