Domaine Des Lises (M. Graillot) Crozes-Hermitage 2016 Magnum
Maxime Graillot learned a great deal from his father, the legendary Alain Graillot, and has now taken things to the next level with his own domaine. When he purchased his first parcels in 2003, he literally started from the ground up, beginning with the soil. Maxime converted the conventionally farmed vineyards to organics and has banned the use of herbicides. The fruits of his labor produce wines that are powerful yet graceful.
