Gramenon Cotes du Rhone Rouge 'Poignée de Raisins' 2022
A sensual and joyous blend of Grenache with a dash of Cinsault. The name translates to 'a fistful of grapes' and is produced from the younger vines on the original Gramenon estate. Here we have a red Côtes du Rhône that is refreshing, invigorating and very moreish. Even brighter and more lifted than normal it is especially silky, lithe and most of all, delicious. So many try to make this style of wine and yet there is nothing like this; we never get as much as we want of this very popular wine so be quick.
The fruit is fermented without sulphur using indigenous yeasts. Everything is moved by gravity, there are no pumps. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration with only some cuvees receiving light amounts of sulphur.
This style of non-interventionist winemaking 'par excellence has forged the estate a legendary reputation and following. The wines age wonderfully when correctly stored.
