Julien Cecillon - Syrah 'Les Graviers' 2018
This product is currently sold out.
This is the second year that we get to work with Julien and Nancy's 'Les Graviers' bottling, and we know exactly what to expect now.
Their wines across the board are just so elegant and refined, but with plenty of distinct Northern-Rhone character. 'Les Graviers' is their entry-level bottle, but even this shows the class of their winemaking, with lots of classic peppers and red berry fruit.
This is a perfect daily red, something that isn't tiring on the palate but still juicy and delicious.
Blend: 100% Syrah
Terroir: Schist-Gneiss on Granite
Drinking Window: 2020-2024
Nancy and Julien's winery was only created in 2011 but already they've won fans and critics over with their passion, uncanny know-how, and also of course excellent viticulture. It's run organically and sustainably, with minimum SO2 at bottling, wild yeasts, and generally old oak.
They have some excellent vineyards in the appellations of Saint Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage, and the two have extensive experience working in wineries such as Yves Cuilleron, Fabrice Gripa, Christophe Curtat, JC Cellars, Clos du Val, Saintsbury, Indevin and Saronsberg.
Julien, who is a local of Tournon-sur-Rhône and nephew of Jean Louis Grippat, met Nancy in the US, and after a few years of working and travelling with wine, they decided to return home to create Cave Julien Cécillon. We couldn't be happier to represent their wines here in Hong Kong exclusively.
