  • Sale
  • Regular price $29.00

The Gramenon "Poignée de Raisins" is all Grenache from young vines grown on the hillsides and plateau of Gramenon in Montbrison. The terroir is a maritime sandstone/sand and shell soil. The grapes are partially de-stemmed, there is a 15-day maceration and fermentation with wild yeasts with a 6 month aging in vats. The 2018 vintage shows deep notes of plum, rose hip and cranberry on the nose, along with a more subtle savory side. The palate is a brighter medley of red fruit, which includes notes of ripe cherry, apple, and white flowers. A wine to be enjoyed within 3 years. JDC
