Variety

Syrah

'Les Graviers' is a négociant blend of Syrah from three vineyard sites in the Rhône Valley. The majority of fruit comes from the southern parts of the Drôme and Ardèche regions, and a smaller amount comes from vineyards around Tournon. 'Les Graviers' means gravel, which is a reference to the humble-yet-essential stone used in everyday life. The name has a few other meanings to Cecillon: First, the winery was a former gravel warehouse, and second, the market square in Tournon where Julien grew up is called Place des Graviers.
