Maxime Graillot Equinoxe 2010

For the price, this is one of the best Crozes-Hermitages that I've tried.  Bright in clarity, with a deeply intense purple colour, this 100% syrah based wine opens to a clean nose with a light to moderate fragrance of white pepper and plums.  On the palate, balanced acidity and tannins, with flavours of plums and spices, and reasonable persistence on the finish.  For around $30, this is a bargain.  The peppery character reminded me ever so slightly of a Craiglee shiraz.  87 to 88 points

Abv: 13%
