*6R* 2020 M. Graillot "Domaine de Lises" Crozes-Hermitage (Rhone Valley, FR)

Weight: 6R 

Varietal: Syrah 

Region: Rhone Valley, France 

There are few names as respected in the Northern Rhone as the name Graillot, and the family stands as one of the prime examples of the excellence that the Rhone Valley can deliver. 

"Domaine de Lises" embodies the power and elegance of Syrah, with complex aromas and harmonious palate. Enjoy notes of blackberries, cracked black pepper and a classic Rhone smoked meat. The palate is defined and firm, mimicing the nose with integrated tannins, velvety texture and a hint of spice on the finish. The bold, structured character makes this an excellent companion for grilled and roasted meats. The first chill evening of fall always makes me wish for this bottle and a hearty bowl of stew.
