The home side began on the front foot and only a brave block prevented Yohan Cabaye from giving the hosts an early lead.
Mamadou Sakho then headed over the bar from a corner, but Armenia slowly grabbed a foothold in the game and Hugo Lloris had to be alert to keep out Zhora Hovhannisyan's effort.
A few moments later, Artur Sarkisov came within inches of tapping home Karlen Mkrtchyan's cross, but the midfielder couldn't quite stretch enough to apply the finishing touch.
Gevorg Kasparov was then called into action twice in quick succession to deny Karim Benzema and Patrice Evra, but there was little he could do to prevent Griezmann from putting France ahead with an unerring strike into the far corner.
