Beautiful smoky meat aromas with black and red fruit, pepper, and black olive all contained in a beautiful violet-colored package.

Reference point Syrah for me and although at the riper end of the Graillot scale still brimming with purity and complexity - 2016

'14, '15, '16. All had the Same Graillot earthy dark berry base palette. The '14 was meaty on top of that. '15 savory and spices. And the '16 had more up front fruit and acidity... almost deviating in style but in a good way. A revisit in 5 years is a must.

Changed rather quickly. Was all fruit upon first opening then got more brambly then got funky like Northern Rhône Syrah. Really would love to try this with some age.

Lots of classic Rhône funk on the nose.
