    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    The traditional cuvée of Jasmin - the Côte Rotie la Giroflarie 2017 - is a blend of plots of the Côte Blonde and the Côte Brune, at 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. Tasted on a vat before a light fining, violet, blackcurrant and walnut smoke appear on the nose of this medium-bodied wine. The tannins seem silky at first, but they firm up considerably on the finish, suggesting a cellaring potential of 10 years and more.

    Deep, glistening ruby. Assertively perfumed aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, exotic spices and candied violet pick up a smoky mineral quality with air. Spicy and sharply delineated on the palate, offering juicy cherry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors that show impressive energy and back-end lift. Finishes sappy, focused and very long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and gentle grip.

Simple, modern wine investing
