Domaine des Gravennes translates to “stony place”, an homage to the famous stone galets sprinkled throughout the vineyards of the Rhone Valley. The 30+ year old vines at Gravennes are surrounded by lavender & truffle oaks, grown on a mix of alluvial, sandy & stony soils. The estate has farmed organically with biodynamic principles for many years, finally receiving certification in 2011.
Aged in large French oak casks (10% new), ripe plum, raspberry & blackberry fruit mingles with piney herbs, cracked black pepper, black olive & spice-laced fine-grain tannins. Rich & big, but not thick or hot. Stylish, balanced & just dang good.
60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre
