Domaine Gramenon 'La Vie On Y Est', Côtes du Rhône Blanc, France 2019
As a former nurse (who often favored natural remedies), Michèle Aubèry-Laurent has come to treat her vines with the same care, conviction, and passion as she had for her former patients. Today, she works twenty-six hectares with her talented son, Maxime François (a rising star in his own right), farming both young and very old vines alike.
Pairing: Perfect companion to fish and seafood, a clean, mineral, and linear expression of Viognier.
Grapes: 100% Viognier, planted to sandstone and shell-sandy soils, raised in neutral barrel.
Soil: Sandstone and shell-sandy soils
