Domain: Domaine des Lises Maxime Graillot, son and proud heir of Alain Graillot, decided to start up his own domain to the south of Tain-l’Hermitage. It is renowned for its exclusive Syrah vine population, stretching over five hectares of Crozes-Hermitage and grown according to traditional and environmentally respectful methods. Yields are controlled to around 35 (even 40) hectoliters per hectare and the soil is cultivated by plough. Having been inspired by the various wine houses he has worked for abroad, Maxime Graillot is now producing excellent wines which are gaining increasing recognition. One to watch.
