On January 31st we are honored to host Alain’s son, Antoine Graillot, for an exclusive evening of allocated wines paired with a five course dinner. Alongside guest sommelier Kevin Hart, Antoine will pour wines from his family’s estate—including Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Maxime Graillot and Domaine de Fa.
From a moderate 21 hectares in the Crozes-Hermitage AOC, Alain Graillot and his family have coaxed the vines and gained international acclaim with exuberant, robust and complex Syrah-based wines. In a mere 20 years, Graillot has established a reputation as one of the most talented producers not only in the Rhône Valley, but in all of France. The family recently acquired vines north of the Rhone in and around Fleurie Beaujolais and we are excited to be sharing this new property during the dinner. Each new release is allocated down to the bottle.
LIMITED RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE
In France’s Northern Rhone Valley, there are few names as revered as Graillot. It was in 1985 that the now legendary Alain Graillot, who after working with the venerable Jacques Seysses at Domaine Dujac, came back to his home in Crozes-Hermitage to start his own domaine. With each passing year his devotion to the art of making hauntingly delicious Syrah from his organically farmed, stone-laden vineyards, has been rewarded with an ever growing and highly dedicated following around the world. So fervent is the fandom that each new release is now allocated down to the bottle. And so it would seem a daunting task for the child of such a luminary to follow in the footsteps of such a giant. Luckily for those who appreciate the art of viniculture, Alain’s sons Maxime & Antoine Graillot and the Domaine Equis and Domaine de fa not only continues the legacy started by his father, he also blazes his own trail in winemaking excellence.
