2020 Jérôme Jouret 'En Avant Doute' Grenache

Jerome Jouret is a humble vigneron located in the Southern Ardèche (Southwest France) where he and his wife Stéphanie organically farm 12 hectares of close-planted vines on the steep, stony lopes of the Vallée de l’Ibie. Since leaving his local co-op in 2006, Jérôme has gained a lot of attention for producing wines quite unlike his neighbours – aromatic, fresh, juicy and low in alcohol. Carbonic maceration is a theme found in all of his wines.

Jérôme’s vineyards are on predominately clay and limestone soils. They are all worked organically, plowed manually by hand even and have never seen any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or systemic fungicides since being planted in the 80s. All his wines are wild fermented, unadjusted, unfiltered, unfined (vegan), and with no added sulphites. While these are 'zero-zero', truly natural wines, they are beautiful, clean, and well-made and can be enjoyed by absolutely anyone. 

En Avant Doute is a juicy, pure-fruited Grenache. Lightly handled with soft, supple tannins. 100% Grenache from 35yo vines planted on chalky limestone and clay soils. Organically farmed, hand harvested, macerated for 15-20 days in stainless steel, then aged for 14 months in a combination of concrete tanks and large format French oak. Bottled unfiltered, unfined and without any added sulphites.
