2019 Maxime François Laurent La Rubiconde
Son of the legendary Michèle Aubery Laurent, Maxime-François, one of the couple’s three children, joined the estate in 2006 and has been integral in applying the tenets of biodynamic viticulture to the vineyard.
While only a few years ago it would have been fair to consider wines like this that are bottled under his own name to be the second wines of Domaine Gramenon, but these days they are now truly the equal in quality (and unfortunately price).
The 2019 La Rubiconde is a more serious wine from Maxime François Laurent. Along with deep, luscious dark fruit flavours, it emphasises the garrigue aromas often found in the best wines from this beautiful corner of the Rhône Valley. This is pure Grenache from old vines, delivered with class.
