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. 

l'elementaire is Grenache and Syrah which are about forty years old grown on clay and rolled pebble soils.  There's a finesse and suppleness to its fruit, layered within grain tannin and mineral freshness. Raspberry and red currents on the nose, with cocoa, black fruits and spice box notes intertwined for a wine of pure, elegant pleasure.
