1998 CÔTE RÔTIE, Robert et Patrick Jasmin

Bin:  700

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Area:

The steep terraced slopes of Côte Rôtie now produce the most sought-after and expensive wines of the whole Rhône Valley. Although first planted by the Romans – Vienne, and not Lyon, was the main Roman town in the area – and cultivated ever since, it took the success of the house of Guigal (notably when they made 3 wines in 1985 which achieved 100/100 from the critic Robert Parker) to bring the region to world wide attention

Grape variety:

95% Syrah, 5% Viognier

Producer:

The last vintage for Robert Jasmin, who died suddenly in 1999. This small estate is now run by Patrick, whose great-grandfather, Alexandre, was the chef at Château Ampuis and was awarded some vines for services to the estate in the early 1900’s. Today he farms 5.3 hectares of vines located in 11 parcels in 8 separate areas spread across both escarpments of Côte Rôtie – the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde. The style has alwasy been considered as the “most Burgundian” (i.e. delicate and fine) of the appellation

Old Bridge rating:

Softly mature. This is harmonious and elegant – with really fascinating aromas of beetroot and earth

Press review:

Robert Parker: “This is the best wine I have tasted from Jasmin over the last decade. It exhibits excellent ripeness, a rich, black-raspberry, sweet pepper, and spicy nose, medium-bodied, concentrated flavors, well-integrated acidity, and firm tannin in the finish.”
