Big Smokey nose. Olives, black tapenade. Juicy, ripe and complex. Very ripe but refreshing. Lovely purity and freshness.

Oh man. Gimme mo! Big, rich, savory as all hell but balanced by that deep pure fruit one expects from a name like Graillot. I love the purity Maxime gathers with increased de stemming, perhaps a longer soak?? Black olive, beef blood, venison, fur, smoke, plump black cherry and plum, smoke, melange of herbs; sage, tarragon, thyme. Licorice and violet too. Very gravelly mineral notes throughout. This will be so good in 5+ years but who can resist a 2015 thats this promising right now.

Ripe blackberry, crushed violets, fresh cut cedar, graphite, and wet gravel. Juicy, brooding, begging for lamb...

Magnum. Delicious. Hint of Brett lends a pleasant touch of funk.

Wafts of seaside grape taffy.

Heavy bodied beauty! Tiny bits of anise, sprinkled upon pomegranate juiced from whole fruit, skin and all. A lovely mouthfeel, and an amazing Crozes for the price. Good integration of grapeskin tannins. Que Syrah, Syrah, Syrah.

Beautiful nose of ripe fruits, meat, graphite, and licorice. Gorgeous purple from the syrah. Very deep and complex in the mouth, slightly dry but low tannin.

Violet, black cherry, blackberry, some vegetal, earthy notes, dried fruit raisin, spice, licorice, high acid and med + body, nicely structures and balanced wine for the money that has potential for ageing

Violets on the nose, then silky smooth mouth feel with slight tannins and ripe fruits. Delish! $28 at Village Corner.
