Southern Rhone Fans - Supplier Closeout Deal

#1 Post by Tom K. » December 4th, 2018, 7:55 am

This is the BEST WINE from Rasteau! In 2012 it was labeled IGP due to the high percentage of Vaccarese, Counoise, Carignan, Cinsault and Terret Noir within the blend. At this time, the Rasteau appellation laws only permit these varieties up to 15%, yet to maintain the integrity of his vineyards and the wine they produce, Jérôme opted for the lesser classification—at least until the appellation rules catch up in 2019

A true blockbuster, the Grenache-dominated 2012 IGP Vaucluse comes all from clay and limestone soils around Rasteau, and spent 24-36 months in a combination of foudres and demi-muids. Loaded with notions of black cherries, black currants, crushed rocks, licorice and roasted herbs, this beauty is full-bodied, voluptuous, sexy and gorgeously textured. And while it has tons of richness, it also has notable purity, good freshness and ripe tannin that frame the finish nicely. It’s already hard to resist, but it will continue to knock your socks off for another 10-15 years.

When Jérôme Bressy created Domaine Gourt de Mautens in 1996, Rasteau was a fairly obscure Côtes-du-Rhône Villages but with his family’s old vines and their naturally low yields he burst on the scene garnering attention (along with Andre Roméro at Domaine la Soumade) for the potential of the terroirs of Rasteau. These were excitingly complex and novel wines coming from a place once only regarded for the production of vin doux naturel. Barely 23 years old with the release of his first vintage, Jérôme had benefitted from a decision that his father, Yves Bressy, had made in 1989 – the conversion of the family’s vineyards to organic farming. This allowed Jérôme to start Gourt de Mautens with healthy vines and living soils. In 2008 Jérôme took the additional step of completing the conversion to biodynamics, and earning certification from DEMETER.
