RIP Alain Graillot

RIP Alain Graillot, the man who single-handedly put Croze-Hermitage on the wine map!
Met him a couple of times during the Decouvertes en Vallee du Rhone wine week and he was always very hospitable and an education and inspiration to talk to. I hope his boys stay true to his memory.


Whilst I understand that print deadlines may be far in advance of events which occur around the world of wine, it is still very disappointing to see that Alain Graillot is still referred to in the ‘present tense’ on Page 81 of the new edition of The List. As reported above, Alain sadly died on March 3rd.
