2017 Domaine Gramenon Côtes du Rhône L'Elementaire
This is a superb wine. It is not from the actual Gramenon Estate, but from 50 year old vines from a 5ha property they purchased in 2007 in Valreas and converted to biodynamics (as at the estate). This 2016 is deep, lush and brims with beguiling floral, stony scents and carnal richness. In the mouth it is compact to start then fans out beautifully with succulence, freshness and vibrancy - provided it is kept well, this will last and last. Brilliant.
