DOMAINE JÉROME GRADASSI

LVT 2018 r 2017 wh Jérôme was the chef at the good Avignon restaurant L’Isle Sonnante until starting his first bottling in 2004. He is a cousin of Serge Gradassi of Domaine Les Pères de l’Eglise. He works 5.2 hectares of Châteauneuf-du-Pape based on three locations which are all very close to one another in the Northern sector - Palestor (2 ha), Bois Dauphin (1 ha), Cabrières (2 ha). These vineyards are mainly clay, with very few galet stones and a lot of Mistral wind factor. Jérôme likes to harvest late, and ferments whole bunches. Quality has become consistent after excess extraction in the early years, the 80% Grenache coming from old vines which supply good packing for the palate, with no overoaking. The white, only up to 800 bottles, is 70-80% old Clairette rose, and the 2017 was a wine of character and refinement.
