This is in interesting story because it’s very rare to find a block planted with only Grenache Gris. In fact, in the past (and we’re not really sure as to why), Grenache Noir was often co-planted with a mix of 5 to 10% Grenache Gris. In the Minervois, most of what remains (many of it has been
pulled) still goes together in the same fermentation tanks, but we’ve started to pick it separately two to three weeks before the reds

Moving to the Grenache Gris releases, the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Brama Grenache Gris all look to be outstanding, with varying degrees of citrus, mineral, honeycomb and hints of nuttiness to go with medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. These are just another example of how successful this variety can be in this part of the world, and they deserve attention.
