Alain Graillot St Joseph 2005

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 17-May-2011
100% Syrah from the ‘St Desirat' site from 17 y.o. vines, the wine aged a minimum of 12 months in 10% new oak. Dar, deep ruby-red in colour, this has soft, full, classical cool, red-berry fruit nose with nuances of herbs, spices and a little milk chocolate. Full and softly broad on palate, the fruit flavours are restrained, and earth, cedar and oak resin notes come through. The tannins are beginning to resolve, and the wine is a little lacklustre. This is drinking well now and will for the next 4-6 years.  May 2011
