Domaine Gramenon Côtes du Rhône Rouge 'La Sagesse' 2017
'Translates to 'the wise one' and is produced from 2 parcels of 60-year-old vines on the Gramenon 'estate' at Montbrison sur Lez. This is a very beautiful wine as always and one of my personal favorite wines from anywhere - this takes Grenache to extraordinary levels of refinement and Burgundian levels of attraction and elegance. It is always a little Chambolle-esque with its silken mouthfeel and sensual lingering fragrance. If any one wine displays all the qualities that are unique to Gramenon, it is this one. And at the price it sells for, it is one of the wine worlds great bargains in my opinion.'
