I had a couple of my favorite Daniels over, Ravier of Tempier and Brunier of Vieux Télé and Les Pallières, so I opened a bottle of this Côte Rôtie to accompany a plate of Sicilian salami and Les Pallières goat cheese. I wrote down what Ravier had to say about this latest Barruol/Lynch northern Rhône collaboration:
What a nose! This is a return to the true, magical Côte Rôtie perfume of yesteryear. It reminds me of black currant with sweet spices and a very elegant touch of oak. On the palate it has a lot of freshness, which is a sign of aging potential. Also flavors more toward red fruits like raspberry and strawberry, plus a touch of elderberry. Beautiful aftertaste, lush and long.

Every three or four months I would send my clients a cheaply made list of my inventory, but it began to dawn on me that business did not pick up afterwards. It occurred to me that my clientele might not know what Château Grillet is, either. One month in 1974 I had an especially esoteric collection of wines arriving, so I decided to put a short explanation about each wine into my price list, to try and let my clients know what to expect when they uncorked a bottle. The day after I mailed that brochure, people showed up at the shop, and that is how these little propaganda pieces for fine wine were born.—Kermit Lynch
