Jérôme Bressy took over his father's estate in 1996 when he was just 23 years old. They farm 13 hectares of certified organic vines and even achieved biodyanamic certification with Demeter in 2008. Traditional winemaking practices are employed here, and they only release three wines each vintage: a white, a rosé, and a red. The grapes for this wine come from 30- to 100-year-old gobelet-trained vines that are grown in chalky marl soils with northwest and southwest exposures. Bright ruby with garnet edges in the glass, it exhibits lifted red berry fruits, plum, damp earth, fresh sage, clementine zest, and sweet spice alongside that classic Rasteau funk. The palate is ripe with brambly red raspberries, more herbs, and a meaty, savory streak which last onto the finish. This would be a good match for steak, roasted capon (for the adventurous), or beef bourguignon. Tim Gagnon
