In December of 1978 Philippe Laurent and Michèle Aubéry-Laurent bought a barn and 12 hectares of old vines in Montbrison.  Their first harvest took place in 1979 with their first cuvee being the Ceps Centenaires. It became a cult wine immediately and has been ever since. The vines that it comes from are now about 130 years. This wine is always extraordinarily elegant, fleeting floral aromas and gorgeous, crystal pure fruit flavours fan and dance around the senses. It’s a wine that makes me wonder and also ponder – in essence though it’s a beautiful wine; graceful and very very sensual. If Grenache were Pinot Noir then this would be Gramenon‘s Musigny.  Andrew Guard – Importer77
