Jérôme Jouret is a sole-vigneron located in the Southern Ardèche (SW of Rhône) where he organically farms 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 predominately clay and limestone. They are all worked organically, plowed by hand even and have never seen any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or systemic fungicides since being planted in the 80s.
L'Accroche Coeur is Merlot & Syrah blend; rich and dark yet still fresh and easy going.
