I agree with @Jonathan Wall that compared with the ‘16 vintage, this lacks a bit of refinement. It’s still better than the ‘15, and after hours slow ox it opened gorgeously, tannins softened, and had that lead pencil, blue slate thing again.

Graillot is one of my all time favorites. I bought one ‘17 to test and see how much more of the ‘17 I want to buy. And not much. It’s delicious... but the last few years seem to be evolving away from the unique Alain Graillot style I remember from years past. Still can’t get the ‘95 out of my head... it ruined me.

Nice for crozes. Tannins chunky and rustic. Dark fruit plus herbs.

Classic Crozes with minty bouquet, spices, white pepper and herbs. Rosemary and blackberry on the palate. Balanced and top quality
