Awarded 91 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of the Southern Rhone (see blue link below).
Syrah is stated as the "majority" variety, and we know this to be almost 100% in exceptional years, with huge attention to detail shown by Gramenon to create a beautifully balanced wine. Grapes are manually harvested and macerated for 12 days. Natural yeasts are used in the fermentation, followed by a 7-month ageing before bottling, some part being aged in steel, some in oak barriques.
This is bold and elegant Cotes du Rhone, and much above the common herd: it is silky, aromatic, and full of local flavor: lavender, black olive, and ripe blackberry. It will keep for up to 8 years from vintage.

The 2011 is dark ruby in colour and features aromas of dried red fruits and herbs that mingle nicely with the earthy notes of the forest floor and hints of wet stone. This medium-bodied wine fills the front to mid palate with fresh summer strawberries while the fine tannins are nicely integrated into the wine making it approachable upon release.
A deep red colour with violet hues. It offers bright, aromatic black fruits of plum and black cherry on the nose with refreshing acidity and round tannins. This wine would go very well with turkey as an alternative to white wine.
