Alain Graillot is a top grower in the Rhône's Crozes-Hermitage region. He also makes this fragrant, gently spiced and full-flavoured syrah with an excellent estate in Morocco. Dark and ripe yet elegant with it, with a lick of spice and a hint of raspberry.
Product Code: MO131
"Good work by the WS buyers here - this is really enjoyable and more than just the novelty of a Moroccan bottle on the rack.
Nice mix of blackcurrant, eucalyptus and menthol on the nose. The taste brings in a mix of red and dark fruit, with a sprinkling of pepper.
I would recommend this wine
"Soft fruity and easy drinking. After a number of shiraz wines that seemed to need a lot of softening before drinking, this was a simple delight. Not a lot of shape, but rich and welcoming. I defer to those who have experience of previous vintages, but would happily give this to my guests (when that is possible again!)"
"I was wowed by an earlier vintage. Amazing with spice food like a lamb tagine or curries. Sadly the 2018 really wasn't as good."
There are no press reviews for this product.
Miss Saira Henry (11-May-2020)
"An agreeable syrah, striking a balance between classic north Rhone and some of the jammier shiraz from Aus, more approchable than those French styles but nothing outstanding, its alright. "
Mr Jack Wright (08-Feb-2020)
"Regulation Syrah. Dark fruit nose, fruity but quite tannic palate, didn’t get much spice or oak. Medium bodied, with a longish grippy finish. I bought this to explore different wine regions from the usual. Nothing wrong with it but you can find better value in this style at the Wine Society. "
Mr John Lay (05-Feb-2020)
"This was bought as a bit of a punt in my mission to put an unusual (to me) country in every case I buy.
Turned out to be a very good decision. From first sip (a more than mild liquorice hit) to end of first glass (now very reminiscent of a new world shiraz) I could not believe how good this was."
Mr Christopher Gilbert (17-May-2019)
"Lovely jammy fruitiness with peppery notes and velvety tannins, some earthy leather notes. Really enjoyable."
Ms Rebecca Outram (08-Mar-2019)
Rotherham Advertiser (13th May 2019)
"Dark, rich and ripe
with a subtly baked, raisiny undertone to the sweet berry and cherry fruits,
and some earthy, spicy hints. - David Clay"
"A nice wine. The highlight was probably the label which I think is excellent, but also a nice fullish, spicy but gluggable drinker. Probably can get slightly better value for money, but by no means a rip off."
Mr James Eatwell (06-Sep-2018)
"Really enjoyed this soft, easy drinking red. Also popular with my dinner guests, in fact sadly now all gone. "
Mr Michael Ahlquist (05-Jun-2018)
"Soft, almost lactic. Little in the way of pepper. Dull and uninteresting overall."
Mr Barry Kelly (08-May-2018)
Metro (12th Jun 2018)
"A collaboration between a leading Rhône producer and a top Moroccan estate, this full-throttle red would nail a lamb tagine. - Rob Buckhaven"
The Oldie (3rd Feb 2018)
"… splendidly spicy … Bill Knott"
