Syrah Les Graviers 2019
Rhone Valley, France
Fruit for ‘Les Graviers’ is sourced from three different vineyard sites, 100% destemmed, and aged mostly in used oak, giving way to a fresh wine full of crunchy dark fruit, pepper, and earth spice flavors.
While the Cécillon label only recently began, Julien’s family has been documented making wine in Tournon for eleven generations. From their winery near Tournon in the historic center of the Rhone Valley, they are dedicated to producing exceptional terroir-driven wines. Julien Cécillon grew up in Tournon-sur-Rhône, surrounded by the maternal branch of the family that includes iconic producers such as his cousin Bernard Faurie, and uncle Jean-Louis Grippat. After meeting Nancy Kerschen while working at a winery in California, the two decided to return to Tournon and create their own winery. Acquiring small parcels by chance, opportunity, and perseverance, Julien and Nancy have worked together with tireless focus to craft wines that establish their own reputation amongst the best producers in the Northern Rhone
