When Grenache works, wow, it's everything, fruit, texture, richness, freshness, what's the key to Grenache? Sometimes the terroir slot machine comes up with three cherries.

Give this thing some time to breathe and you will know what Grenache is capable of. One of my favorite Rhone bottlings, north or south.

My palate was perfectly primed for this experience...finally! The lady of Gramenon has slapped me in the face with her mineral wand many a time and I have loved it, but this was what I was always looking for. Had all the good characteristics of a very well aged soft warm voluptuous Chateauneuf with a SICK mineral streak for support and depth. That mineral streak has always fucked me up in the past, overpowering my mouth and blocking me from orgasm with this wine. This time we both win.

Oh god, why did I do that? Definitely already had plenty to drink. I don't even remember this. It's always good though so fuck it. I'm just going for the thumbs up on this blindly 😋 it's always a winner

Simply put, the best côtes-du-rhône I've had. Super earth driven with hints of smokey meat. Fruit is ripe and lush yet the acid brightens the palate. Amazing with food.
