Maxime-François is the son of Michèle Laurent, the winemaker behind cult-estate, Domaine Gramenon. Maxime has been working at the family farm alongside his mother for many years, but in 2006 he also ventured his own path. He partnered up with a local grower with 6ha in Montbrison-sur-Lez and Valréas. The vineyards, like those of his family estate, are farmed organically. He also treats the wines in a similar style, meaning that he focuses on whole cluster with minimal intervention and minimal sulphur additions, if any. With nearly 20 years of production, these wines stand alongside those of Domaine Gramenon, not behind them.
