Patrick is a fourth generation winemaker, who took over from his father Robert (after his sudden death) in 1999. Patrick’s Great-Grandfather, Alexandre, was the chef at Château Ampuis and he was awarded some vines for services to the estate in the early 1900’s. Today Patrick farms 5.3 hectares of vines located in 11 parcels in 8 separate climats or lieu-dits spread across both escarpments of Côte Rôtie – the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde. Patrick deploys approximately 5% of Viognier in his classic Côte Rôtie and commendably only produces one cuvée of wine. Patrick’s extensive vine-holdings allow him an enviably broad palette of fruit from which to blend and his wine typically has a harmonious integration of fruit and tannin which is why it has been described as the “most Burgundian” wine of the appellation.
Wines by Patrick Jasmin:
"The medium ruby-colored 2000 Cote Rotie does not possess a great deal of power or richness, but it offers an elegant, superficial yet pleasant, herb-tinged raspberry and cherry character with hints of vanilla and white flowers in the background." 87/100.

'Juicy but elegant, with a beam of red currant and damson plum fruit backed by fine-grained tannins. Notes of shaved vanilla, briar and coffee chime in on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 89/100.'

A classic Côte Rôtie from Patrick Jasmin that reveals its traditional roots in a bouquet of raspberries and violets and a palate of dense black fruit flavours and ripe tannins. Cautious modernisation is evident in more consistent concentration, improved colour and deft deployment of oak adding a little more polish to this justly celebrated Côte Rôtie.
