Gourt de Mautens’ IGP Vaucluse Rouge 2012 has been described by Wine Advocate as “a true blockbuster”. Jeb Dunnuck, who awarded it 95 points, said: “It’s already hard to resist, but it will continue to knock your socks off for another 10-15 years.”
Proprietor Jérôme Bressy is described by Robert Parker as “a very accomplished producer”. Dunnuck concurs that Bressy is “making some of the greatest wines in the Southern Rhône. Unfortunately, there’s just not much to go around…” The organic and biodynamic old vines – some of which are 100 years old – are de-budded in spring, keeping yields, and therefore production, extremely low.
Jérôme Bressy, who co-plants his varietals and champions the traditional grapes permitted in Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Counoise, Cinsaut, Muscardin, Picardin, Picpoul, Vaccarèse and Terret Noir), has broken free from the constraints of the Rasteau AOC, choosing to relabel his wines as IGP Vaucluse in pursuit of increased authenticity and even higher quality.
Dunnock urges readers: “don’t miss a chance to grab some of these” wines from Domaine Gourt de Mautens...
