Jerome Balmet 2016 Vin De France "Barbe"Jerome Balmet
Jérôme Balmet “Barbe” 2016. Wonderfully pure and juicy 100% Gamay, Vin De France from Beaujolais.
Interesting label grabbed the attention of many but the freshness and purity of the wine really surprised/impressed us. Based in Vaux-en-Beaujolais (south of Brouilly), Balmet worked with both Lapalu and Lapierre - quite a CV! - before striking it on his own with his first vintage in 2012.
