Popped and let sit in the glass for around 30 minutes with occasional swirling. Quintessential french syrah in the best possible way. Bacon fat, smoked blackberries, maybe a little whole cluster-ness. Maybe a hair tight but the porkiness, dark fruit, and tannin formed an excellent balance that heightened with each 30 minutes of time. Glad I have one more bottle. 92pts.

The wine is clear with a medium intensity, ruby color.

Developing nose with a medium(+) intensity. Aromas of baked black fruit, baked plums, blackberry, violets, bay leaf, olives, cedar wood, leather, animal, smoked meat, bonfire and a hint of mint. Great complexity on the nose!

The wine is dry with a medium acidity, medium(+) body and tannins. Medium(+) intensity with flavors of blackberry, raspberry, baked plum, green olives, smoked meat, coffee beans and spice box. The finish is medium(+).

Unlike everyone else I haven't tasted Graillot's C-H more than once before. I really like this one which shows a lot of development but still with a foot left in it's youth. A great example of sunbaked, smoky, powerhouse Syrah. It's in a perfect phase for drinking right now and will probably stay there for another 2-3 years, at least.

Powerful. Juicy. Goes fantastic with pepper-meat meals. It really holds the length. Drink in short time, 1-2 years.

Raw meat, bell pepper, blackcurrants, olives, plastic and a rather disturbing smoky note that ruins the fun for me.

Dry with a medium+ acidity, medium bodied, distinct, medium+ tannin, medium intensity and a medium+ finish.

Put this in SA due to a distinct touch of ashes on the nose together with very ripe fruit. Better on the palate, but nothing that gets me going either. Still a good quality wine that is quite far from the recent vintages of Graillots C-H.

Solid one. I like the profile of the 2013. Not overly complex, but with all the good characteristics of a Graillot Crozes. A light version of the 2010. Will be nice with some age in the bottle.

Very bright, young nose with fresh red fruits. On the palate, there's a hint of fruit initially, but then the significant structure takes over. Really nice flavours in the mouth and after.

Cellared since original release. Disappointing. Unlike previous bottles. Lacking fruit and expressiveness. Tannic. Closing up?

Lovely development towards bayleaf, allspice, and meat soup. Smooth tannins, with a peppery, firmly mineral structure. Lovely now, should keep for another five.

It smells like mushroom and forest floor. It tastes like mineral and prune. The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle.

Thought there was some VA upon popping the cork but no, it's fine. Nose of nicoise olives, horse saddle along with more barnyard notes. This must have been a cool vintage. Acid is very pronounced on the palate. Tannins are resolved and fruit is dark but minimal. Very tertiary. Finishes briefly. Drink up!

Light red color wine. Easy drinking with good amount of complexity. Tannin are present but do not overwhelm the taste profile. Nice berry notes with good restraint on the residual sugar front.

De couleur rubis, très légèrement évolué au pourtour. Bouchon à moitié imbibé, aucune altération. Au nez, il dégage des arômes de prune, de bleuêt, le fruit est chaud et bien mûre, notes d'épices douces (poivre, vanille). La bouche est ample et ronde, sur un fruité chaud. C'est concentré et goûteux. Il y a juste assez d'acidité pour contre-balancer le léger sucre résiduel. Le milieu de bouche est légèrement épicé et s'allonge longuement. Note de menthe en rétro. Très bon pour le prix!! Je vais faire provision du 2010!!!

2 Bouteilles ouvertes ce soir; le vin était expressif dès l'ouverture de la bouteille, arômes de fruits rouges confits et de tapenade. En bouche l'acidité gênante et trop prononcée s'est estompée au bout de 30 minutes et le vin a retrouvé son équilibre. La deuxième bouteille a été carrément carafée, c'était que du plaisir.

Good bottle.
Starts to get some age. Dense core. Quite cloudy. Unfiltered. I would say purple core and brick rim.
When popped and poured the bouquet was very burgundian. Red flowers, red berries, herbs, spices and oak. But with time in the glass (+ 30 min) it builds on some meat and blood, and show more green notes, stalks and leafs. Reminds me of 2004 Burgundy ... so I'm back in Burgundy again ... but after an hour the black olives appears.
Nice flavours of dark berries, black olives, meat, bacon, herbs. A little green note. Nice medium acidity, firm but soft tannins, integrated and good balance. But the finish is quite short. Nice mouthfill though.

Oh man, this was in a killer spot. Nose explodes with classic N. Rhone black olive, smoked meat, bacon, black fruit and pepper. Palate has medium weight, plush black fruit and gripping acidity. Seamless. Savory, long finish. Amazing stuff and amazing value.

Supposedly a semi-crappy vintage from Graillot but today this is delicious. Dark Syrah fruit with raw meat, bacon and black olives. Great with coq au vin. Very limited experience with the wines from Graillot, but it seems that there's no need to keep this any futher.
