Jérôme Balmet France

Jérôme Balmet learned his craft working with both Jean-Claude Lapalu and Mathieu Lapierre and produced his first vintage in 2012. He has just 3.5ha of vines split between Vaux-en-beaujolais and Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières just south of Brouilly. His site in Vaux consists of 50-year-old vines planted on blue granite on a steep hillside vineyard, while his Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières site is heavier soil down on the valley floor producing wines of greater density.

Jérôme farms organically with some biodynamic practices applied during the season. The grapes are transported a short distance to his tiny cellar in Vaux, where they undergo a light maceration in his handful of old concrete tanks and foudres and are bottled with no additions whatsoever.

Borrowing 1.2 hectares of field from Vaux-en-Beaujolais which is close to Bruyi, Jerome starting making wine in 2012.


He, himself, also grew up here, and his father also owns a field less than 1 ha, but his father's wine making is a range of hobbies. I do not produce more than for private consumption so I can enjoy it with my friends. Of course Jerome himself has often learned from his father, but also from Mathieu Lapierre and Jean-Claude Rapalu, who learned natural wine making.


Before starting wine making, Jerome studied martial arts in China, as well as indulging in yoga and meditation in Thailand. A gentle, precise word is chosen, and wine whose gentle gaze is unique by Jerome is a spiritual wine that expresses himself as it is.
