Overview

For many years Jérôme Bressy helped establish the reputation of Rasteau but when the AOC began to limit the varieties permitted in the wines labelled Rasteau, Jérôme decided to leave the appellation and bottle his wines as IGP Vaucluse. Made entirely from estate fruit grown in the village of Rasteau, Jérôme’s rouge is a blend of Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, Vaccarèse, and Terret Noir from vines between 30 and 100 years old. The exposure of these low-bearing, head-pruned vines is northwest and southwest – providing both freshness and power to the final blend. Harvested by hand and triple sorted the grapes are crushed and fermented in tronconic vats by indigenous yeasts then aged in concrete, foudres and demi-muids.
