Syrah & Syrah Blends
Red Table Wine
Patrick Jasmin is a true artisan in the terraced slopes of Côte-Rôtie; a fourth generation wine maker tending to parcels in 8 different Lieu-Dits, with his wife Arlette expertly handling all business matters.
Jamin’s signature cuvee, La Giroflarie, is made with 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier, the latter a traditional addition adding finesse and floral aromas. His Syrah vines are massale selections of the ancient and near extinct “la vieille sérine” clone, which produce smaller berries with lower yields and beautiful aromatics. Grapes are de-stemmed, and co-fermented in cement with a 3 week maceration. The juice is then racked into a combination of barrel and demi-muid, 15-30% of which is new depending on the vintage, and then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This Côte-Rôtie will age beautifully, and already shows notes of ripe red and black berries, licorice, and spring flowers, with fine grained tannins and a Burgundian restraint.
