12-Pack Case Domaine des Lises Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage 2017
“A négociant project from Maxime Graillot and Thomas Schmittel, Equis offers a charming, ripe 2017 Crozes Hermitage Equinoxe. Rich and chocolaty for such a young, ready-to-drink wine, it was entirely destemmed and aged 60% in tank and 40% in wood. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple, almost creamy in texture, with a long finish.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
About Domaine des Lises:
Domaine des Lises Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage is an organic single-variety Syrah red wine produced by Domaine des Lises under the A.O.C. Crozes-Hermitage in the Rhône Valley, France.
Maxime Graillot, who directs Domaine des Lises, has a master's in winemaking, and honed his skills by spending time training in Burgundy and South Africa. He learnt a great deal from Alain Graillot, the man who put Crozes-Hermitage on the map for elegant wines and who also happens to be his father.
Domaine des Lises Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage comes from grapes grown organically in vineyards located in Pont de L'Isère where gravel soils predominate and no pesticides or herbicides are used. The wine goes through a subtle carbonic maceration and is fermented in concrete tanks and large tapered wooden tanks where it also ages for 12 months.
