Lot #441. Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Guiraude 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 RP.
"The 1990 La Guiraude is a compelling example of just what heights a top producer can reach in a less prestigious appellation. The nose of smoke, Asian spices, black fruits, and oak is enough to turn any wine enthusiast into a Rhone wine fanatic. On the palate, the wine exhibits a multidimensional personality, phenomenal ripeness and richness, decent acidity, and gobs of glycerin, alcohol, and extraction of flavor in a finish that must last for a minute. It is surprisingly approachable given its massive size, but the fruit and body have hidden some lofty tannin levels." Rhone Book, Jan 1997
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Lightly damp stained, lightly scuffed, lightly faded label.
