‘Inky ruby. Pungent black and blue fruits, licorice and succulent herbs on the spice-accented nose. Shows good depth and breadth on the palate, offering ripe cassis and cherry flavors that take on smoky bacon and violet pastille qualities as the wine opens up. Shows surprising energy for its heft and finishes impressively long and spicy, with dusty tannins adding firming grip. Drink 2022 – 2029.’ – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100

‘More classically built than the 2018, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage features a mélange of cranberries, cherries and raspberries. It's full-bodied, silky and peppery, with a firm but ripe base of tannins and a long, savory finish. Domaine des Lises is the private estate of Maxime Graillot, who also manages his family's domaine, Alain Graillot. It's a fine source for Crozes-Hermitage, both red and white. Drink 2019 – 2026.’ – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 91/100

'Lovely liquorice, black cherry and leather flavours. Snappy acid, furry tannin, bitter chocolate length. Clean, pristine, fresh.' – Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

Producer information Maxime Graillot, Alain Graillot’s son, started his own domaine, Domaine des Lises, in 2003. He transformed the newly purchased vineyards, located in Beaumont Monteux, on the appellation Crozes-Hermitage, and increased planting density by 200%. In 2008, Maxime took over the running of Domaine Alain Graillot from his father. A generational change at any domaine, not least the formidable Alain Graillot, can be daunting. Thankfully, a string of excellent vintages proved that the Graillot dynasty is safe in Maxime’s hands.
