Overview

Formerly labeled a Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc since Rasteau cannot be used on the labels of white wines grown in the appellation, the white from Gourt de Mautens sports the less flashy but imminently more liberating IGP Vaucluse designation. This freedom allows Jérôme to make his wines unencumbered by the local bureaucracy. His white blends a wide range of Rhône varieties planted on chalky and rocky clays and marls with a northwestern exposure.
