Notes of blackberry, bramble, and spice leap from the glass of this wine, with hints of coffee, cinnamon, and white pepper adding depth and interest. The use of older barrels in aging adds softness without intruding on the complexity of the fruit.
Full-bodied but somehow still nimble and elegant, this is a wonderful example of Rhône Syrah. Plush texture and refined tannins resolve in a dry, lingering finish. Decant in the short term, or cellar to allow more nuance to emerge over time.
This muscular Crozes-Hermitage pairs effortlessly with olive tapenade, rack of lamb, grilled steak or roasted duck.
A little sweet, a little tart, this black fruit is rather quiet but persistent.
Juicy dark berries picked straight from the bush, with a subtle hint of leaf and earthiness.
Inhale deeply as your favourite morning aroma returns in your evening drink of choice.
The scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls, straight out of the oven - ooey gooey goodness!
A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.

Domaine Equis is the project of Maxime Graillot, son of Rhône legend Alain Graillot, and it's clear that winemaking chops run in the family. In 2004, after training under his father for years, Maxime decided to begin splitting his time between helping his father and establishing his own winery. Using fruit from organically-farmed vineyards (one of which is adjacent to his father's Domaine Alain Graillot), Maxime began making wines in his own style. Emphasizing expressiveness and concentrated, powerful fruit, the wines of Domaine Equis both honour the Graillot name and blaze a new path forward.
Their Domaine des Lises is 100% Syrah from 40+ year old vines, and is a stunning example of Crozes-Hermitage that can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to a decade. Serve at 18 C.
