Overview

Jérôme’s rosé makes up a significant proportion of his production and it represents his commitment to the quality of his red wines. This cuvée is the destination for the fruit grown at lower elevations as well as most of the fruit from his younger vines. In some vintages it totals close to 30% of his production. But don’t let this scare you away because in Jérôme’s hands this fruit is crafted into a savory and enticing style of rosé with the structure and stuffing to last well into the colder months.
