- Lauded as the top Crozes producer on the planet, Graillot's status has risen steadily since founding his domaine in 1985. With son Maxine onboard, and in charge since 2008, the focus is still firmly on old-vine Syrah. Working organically, the Graillots age their wines for a year in used Burgundy barrels; producing robust, exceptional yet approachable, age-worthy wines. Classic.
