‘Equinoxe’ is made exclusively from Syrah, grown on the rocky, gravelly soils that define the Crozes-Hermitage terroir. Naturally fermented and aged in older oak barrels, the resulting wine is a perfect example of why Rhone Syrah is so captivating. Dark and silky, with fleshy notes of black cherry, boysenberry, and subtle violet, with a whack of cracked black pepper on the finish.
Deep purplish crimson. Lovely authentic northern Rhône Syrah. Juicy with polished tannins and utter pleasure. Richard Hemming MW would love this! Ready already but no hurry to drink.
The Graillot family is synonymous with Crozes-Hermitage, with the late Alain Graillot being widely regarded as one of the Rhone’s finest winemakers. Given his talent and influence, it’s hardly surprising that his sons have also chosen to follow in his footsteps. Domaine Equis is the exciting project of Maxime Graillot, stretching across five meticulously farmed acres in the Crozes-Hermitage region. Maxime trained under his father from a young age, and his knowledge of the region allowed him to purchase top vineyards adjacent to his father's Domaine. He now works organically across Domaine Equis, and like his late father, his goal is to produce enticing reds that showcase the power and potential of the Northern Rhone.
