The two brothers, Maxime and Antoine, from the legendary Graillot family in Northern Rhone, struck gold in 2013 when they discovered and purchased a 5 hectare vineyard named ‘En Besset’, located in the northernmost section of the appellation near Saint Amour and Julienas. The high altitude, stony hillside allowed them to make some serious Gamay with the juicy, wonderful freshness and florality of a Fleurie balanced by the old vine backbone of a granite laden Moulin à Vent. With this debut, the Graillot family has announced themselves as a force to be reckoned with in a region that is currently experiencing a vinicultural Renaissance.
