Maxime Graillot (who was born in 1977) has followed in his father’s footsteps and after studying at the Dijon Wine School he struck out on his own in 2004 working 6.5 hectares of vines on a site called Les Pichères close to his father’s estate on the Chassis plateauin Crozes Hermitage. Maxime produces a light, forward drinking Spring-bottling of red Crozes Hermitage called ‘Equionxe’ as well as a denser, more senior wine under his Domaine des Lises label.View more wines from this producer...
