Gramenon was founded in 1978 and is located in Montbrison-Sur-Lez in the most northern part of the southern Côtes du Rhône area at an altitude of 350-metres. Managed by Michèle Aubery since the passing of her husband in the late 90's, she is now assisted by her son Maxime François Laurent, a talented wine maker in his own right.

Rarely do wines of Cotes du Rhone status cause such a fervor, but the  beauty of the terroir accompanied by Michele and Maxime's skill and understanding of their surrounds creates wines of place and exceptional beauty that are eagerly awaited and enjoyed for their deft touch, purity and complexity. 

La Belle Sortie is a new cuvee mostly coming from a newly acquired vineyard not far from the domaine consiting of 80% Grenache and Syrah from the original estate. The Syrah brings a darker aspect to the nose that is fragrant of blackberries and cassis. Moderate in weight and velvety smooth the fine tannins have a red apple crunch to them keeping things savoury, fresh and eminently drinkable.
