Vinous 90 points - Brilliant ruby. High-pitched aromas of fresh dark fruits, violet, smoky minerals and peppery spices, with a hint of smoky bacon in the background. Juicy, penetrating and nicely concentrated, offering energetic blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that firm up with aeration. Shows very good focus and persistence on the spicy finish, which is framed by fine-grained tannins.  (Feb 2015)

Producer
Maxime Graillot, son of famed Crozes-Hermitage pioneer Alain Graillot, began making very small quantities of Crozes-Hermitage with the 2004 vintage, and we have been thrilled with the results ever since. Compared to Alain’s wines, Maxime’s are similarly exuberant and expressive, yet perhaps with a bit more size and fruit power to them—possibly a result of the fact that Maxime de-stems nearly all of his grapes, whereas Alain does not de-stem. Maxime shares a cellar with his father, and ages his wines in used Burgundy barrels just like Alain. Beginning with the 2007 vintage, Maxime has begun to produce a dynamite St. Joseph, from a plot in Saint Jean de Muzols in the heart of the original appellation.
