Les Graviers is a negociant blend of Syrah from three sources in the Rhone Valley. The majority comes from the southern parts of the Drôme and Ardèche regions, and a smaller amount from vineyards around Tournon. Les Graviers means “Gravel”, a reference to the humble, though essential stone used everyday.
