SIERRA DU SUD
on the 350 meters high plateau of Gramenon in Montbrison sur Lez
Several pieces of land planted with Syrah (8 to 40 years old) cultivated with biodynamic methods.
Gramenon lies on sandstone and shell-sandy soils, making a relief on this landscape of sandy safre. This sandstone bank comes from a molasse layer left by a former maritime coastline under the influence of tidal streams circa 12 million years ago.
