2018 Domaine Gramenon Vie On Y Est
The iconic Domaine Gramenon originates back in 1978 when Philippe Laurent and Michele Aubery-Laurent purchased 12 hectares of vines and an old barn. This wine is produced from Viognier and spends six months in barrel before bottling. It has a complex bouquet of orchard fruits, citrus oil, flowers and mint much the same as fine Condrieu. In the mouth it has lovely supple texture and bright acidity. This is a vibrant, beautifully done Viognier and has some Clairette added in 2018 that has made it even better than usual.
