Domaine Jean-Michel Stéphan
Jean-Michel's 2015 Côte-Rôtie Vin Nature, comprised of Syrah, Serine and a little Viognier. Uncommonly for the Northern Rhône, Jean-Michel uses carbonic maceration for his red wines. Matured in stainless steel tanks for twelve months before bottling. Outspoken notes of cherries, blackberries, cinnamon, liquorice and little bursts of violets. A lovely expression of minerality derived from the elements in the gneiss and granite soils in which the vines thrive. Incredible freshness, finesse and liveliness stand out in this superb wine.
