Domaine Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage La Guiraude 2020

Critical Acclaim: 95 pts James Suckling, 93 pts Wine Spectator, 90 pts Jeb Dunnuck

Tasting Notes: "A fragrant nose of spiced cherries, ripe blackberries, dried herbs, baking spices and hints of earth follow through to a medium body with finely grained tannins. It has precision with a slight bitterness on the mid-palate. Layered and funnelled with a mineral edge. Long savory and spicy finish. Best after 2026." - James Suckling

"Sultry and smoldering, with incense and an attractive cherry and blackberry core. Powerful and densely packed on the smooth palate, with softening tannins still guiding the long, salty, iron-infused finish, which stands firm. Polished and well-crafted, with impressive texture. Drink now through 2032." - Wine Spectator

"The 2020 Crozes-Hermitage La Guiraude is slightly richer, with lifted black cherry, currants, violets, and peppery, incense-like notes in a medium-bodied, fleshy, nicely textured profile. It's a successful Crozes that should have a decade of longevity. Drink 2024-2034." -Jeb Dunnuck
