91 Pts Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Vivid ruby. Dark berries, cherry and licorice on the fragrant nose and palate. Turns spicier with air, picking up bright clove and cinnamon notes, along with a suave floral quality. Finishes with intense spiciness, leaving notes of bitter cherry and anise behind." (05/12)
"The seemingly reserved facade of Michele Aubery-Laurent melts away quickly when she speaks about her wines. As a former nurse (who often favored natural remedies), she has come to treat her vines with the same care, conviction, and passion as she had for her former patients. She and her husband, Philippe, bottled their first vintage of Domaine Gramenon in 1990, in the far northern-eastern stretches of the southern Rhone, in the town of Montbrison-sur-Lez. Philippe was a talented vigneron- both creative and edgy- and he loved to push the envelope of the regulations imposed by the I.N.A.O. In 1999, in an unexpected twist of fate, he was killed in a tragic accident. Michele was suddenly left on her own with their three children, vineyards, and a winery to deal with. Crushed but undaunted, Michele stepped to the forefront, boldly picking up where Philippe left off. Over the years, Michele has discovered her own creative voice in her new vocation; in so doing she has catapulted Domaine Gramenon into cult wine status. Today, she works twenty-six hectares with her talented son, Maxime Francois (a rising star in his own right), farming both young and very old vines alike. They employ organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyards, with a strong non-interventionist stance in the cellars. Maxime Francois has begun flexing his own creative muscle, bottling two cuvees at the domaine under his own name."
"Domaine Gramenon is the authentic embodiment of the philosophies that the Laurents espouse. They do not merely champion organic farming, but they incorporate the concept of sustainability into their daily lives by growing their own food and raising their own animals. The domaine bottles an AOC Vinsobres and a myriad of parcels of Cotes-du-Rhone located around the domaine. Though Michele and Maxime continue to test the confines of the appellation, the cellars are unsurprisingly old-fashioned. The Laurents use gravity-fed cuves and age their wines in oak demi-muids and foudres. That they take such gutsy risks as bottling old-vine fruit with so little sulfur, without fining or filtration, only demonstrates the lengths they will go to in order to highlight the freshness, purity, and intoxicating aromas of their small, rare production."-Importer
