Tasting Notes

Produced in a similar fashion to the ‘Poignée de Raisins’ above but is from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. As always this wine has a bit more power than the Poignee de Raisins. This is very fine and very long on taste and is dangerously delicious, as you might expect from a wine christened – “it’s thirsty time”. The dark horse..  - Importer Note

Aside from producing the wines for Domaine Gramenon, with his mother Michele, Maxime Laurent began his own label in 2006, when he paired up with a grower who had almost six hectares between the villages of Montbrison-sur-Lez and Valréas. Like all of the Gramenon vines, the fruit is farmed organically, without any chemical intervention whatsoever. Similarly, in the winery, Maxime vinifies his wines in the most natural way: no addition of sulphites upon vatting, fermentation with natural yeasts, no fining, no filtration, and only a tiny amount of sulphur after malolactic fermentation (2g/hl).

Needless to say, the wines are just as exciting as Domaine Gramenon's. Vibrant, primary fruit, layered spice, and supported by svelte tannins. All of the hallmarks of the Gramenon wines are here - Maxime Laurent is one to watch.
