GOURT DE MAUTENS 2016 VINTAGE
Ultra-low yields and an unwavering pursuit of terroir expression may not be a fast track to a high profile, but in the case of Jérôme Bressy, they have made him something of a hero to a dedicated following of Rhône lovers.
This 15 hectare estate is in Rasteau, though due to the multitude of grape varieties in these very old vineyards, Jérôme has chosen to work ‘outside’ the appellation.
Grenache is king here, both red and white. The domaine is certified biodynamic and organic. These are beautifully sensitive translations of Grenache, made in tiny volumes.

This is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Clairette, Picardin, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Gris and Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier, all interplanted. It had been in bottle for a year when tasted in July 2019. Pithy white peach fruit and zippy acidity, a lovely clarity and immediacy of expression, with the trademark Gourt de Mautens purity. It was fermented and aged for a year in six year-old 600L demi-muids. No sulphur dioxide was added until the malolactic fermentation.
Domaine Gourt de Mautens rouge IGP Vaucluse 2016
Corney & Barrow Score 18.5/20
Recommended drinking from 2023–2033
SGD110 per bottle
Majority Grenache, with Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, Vaccarèse and Terret Noir. From three plots, tasted separately. Two of these are north west-facing, limestone-rich slopes, planted with 80-100 year-old vines. These bring aromatic violet fruit, with a linear drive. A south west-facing slope, around 300 metres, adds bitter cherries, supple raspberry fruit and length, the elevation countering the greater sun exposure. The whole is sweetly red-fruited and supple, with fruit-coated tannins; the 2016 density is refreshed by a quite brilliant brightness of fruit.
