About The Wine

Gourt de Matens is the Rasteau appellations biggest name. A family property for many generations, this 15-hectare domain is now run by Jérôme Bressy (since 1996), and is split into various parcels on slopes, terrasses, and foothills. The vineyard has been grown organically since 1989 and biodynamically since 2008. Grown here are some regional classics like Grenache, Vieux Carignan, Mourvèdre and Syrah, as well as some older grape varieties from the Rhône valley like Counoise, Vaccarèse, Terret, Cinsault, Picpoul and Picardent. Work in the vineyards is demanding here with very low yields of around 10_12 hl per hectare.

The vinifications are low-intervention and the process is never set in stone, with methods varying depending on the vintage. No additives are used apart from a very small amount of sulphur after fermentation. Finally, the maturation is very long, 2 years for the whites and 3 for the reds, carried out in demi-muids and concrete vats, followed by further ageing after bottling. The wines from this domain are sublime and distinguished by their finesse and their remarkable tannins. They have wonderful maturity and great cellaring potential. One of the iDealwine team’s favourites!

An astonishing blend of forgotten and more widely-known varietals, this wine is the fruit of vines growing in certified biodynamic marl, limestone and clay soils. Whole clusters are crushed and ferment naturally in tronconic vats before a particularly long maturation in demi-muids, used large barrels and concrete vats, allowing the wine to express lively aromas of ripe fruit. Maturing in wood confers woody notes but also enables a process of micro-oxygenation bringing tertiary aromas, including liquorice, smoke and leather. This is a rare and exceptional cuvée with good cellaring potential, perfect for pairing with rich and full-flavoured food
