Domaine Gramenon is run by Michèle Aubèry-Laurent and her son, Maxime François. She established the domaine with her husband Philippe in 1990, in the north-eastern edge of the southern Rhône. Tragically, Philippe was killed in an accident in 1999, but Michelle stepped to the forefront, carrying on where Philippe left off. Since then Michèle has discovered her own creative voice, in so doing she has catapulted Domaine Gramenon into cult wine status.
Today they farm vineyard of 26 hectares, employing organic and biodynamic practices in them, combined with a strong non-interventionist stance in the cellars. The domaine bottles an AOC Vinsobres and a myriad of parcels of Côtes-du-Rhône located around the domaine. They bottle their wines with little sulfur, without fining or filtration, in order to highlight the freshness, purity, and intoxicating aromas of their small, rare production.
La Sagesse is made from 100% old vine Grenache, with vines that average 60 years old. Smooth, open sweet elegant nose is very pure. Gorgeous red fruit on the nose with redcurrant, raspberry and strawberry notes all leaping out. The palate is smooth with silky tannins.
