Known for crafting wines of distinction, Alain Graillot is tied to Syrah. Burgundy-trained by Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac, his wines are now some of the most sought-after in the Northern Rhone. Find the Graillot property near village of Pont de l’Isère, a few kilometers from Tain-l’Hermitage. The vineyards rest on the flat, rocky land between the Isère and Rhône rivers, which fosters better drainage that one might expect. This juicy Syrah offers a long dark fruit finish. We'd put it up against a hearty beef stew or a grilled piece of prime beef.
