Tasting Notes

The brainchild of Crozes Hermitage (Northern Rhone, France) superstar Alain Graillot, this wine is produced at the modern winery of Thalvin, not far from Casablanca, Morocco! The idea for Syrocco was born while Alain Graillot was vacationing in Morocco. Alain realized how the terroir of this region mirrored his vineyards in the Northern Rhone. A collaboration was born between Alain and the modern winery of Domaine Ouled Thaleb and the result was Syrocco.

Made from selected parcels of organic, old-vine Syrah, the 2019 Syrocco is black-ruby in colour with a compelling nose featuring complex aromatics, and excellent balance. Lots of ripe purple-black fruits and dried red cherry swathed in hints of sandalwood, herbs, and spices here. The long finish is dry, and reminiscent of classic Mediterranean Syrah. An excellent, medium to full-bodied wine for a rich, wintry braise!

The fanciful label depicting Alain and his wife riding a bicycle, ties into his story of discovering the land while vacationing.

Important update: Sadly, Alain Graillot recently passed away in March 2022, while on a ski vacation at a vibrant 77 years of age.
