Patrick Jasmin is the fourth generation of winemakers in his family to farm the infamous slopes of the Côte-Rôtie. For this 2015 vintage, Jasmin and his team employed a new large oak vat to age the wine for 12 months, before transferring it to oak casks for a subsequent 12 months. As one might expect, that time in new oak comes through, following dark red fruit and a floral hint of geranium. The 2015 vintage was exceptional in terms of ripeness, lending remarkable concentration and depth. This is a strong, sturdy wine, though less tannic than other vintages. It will come into maturity in 2021, with the possibility of ageing for another 15 years at least.
