Michèle Aubery Laurent, the heart of Domaine Gramenon, is one of the most distinguished grande dames in Rhône wine. 

From the beginning she and her husband Philippe introduced organic methods and the wines immediately earned recognition. Maxime-François, one of the couple’s three children, joined the estate in 2006 and has accompanied them in applying the tenets of biodynamic viticulture to the vineyard.

The rarest of all of the estate wines, the fruit for the Contre Coleur is from a site north of Vinsobres called ‘La Bicarelle’ that produces exquisite old vines fruit each year. The character was so unique that it was decided to bottle the plot on its own with an extended maceration. The result is as superb as you might expect. Bright, sensual lingering fragrance next to glossy, vibrant and beautiful flavours – the finish fans out and lingers on and on.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
