2009 Patrick Jasmin Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1096075 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a brambly feel, with bay leaf and chestnut leaf notes studding the core of red currant, damson plum and blackberry fruit. Offers a mix of green and black olive notes, with a flicker of charcoal on the nicely grippy finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Sexy, floral-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves, star anise and black pepper. Broad, palate-staining black raspberry and violet flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and show no excess weight. Finishes bright and nervy, with youthful tannic grip, excellent persistence and impressive focus. By all means give this wine some air or more bottle age. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (4/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A beautiful Cote Rotie, Jasmin's 2009 Cote Rotie offers classic cassis and black raspberry fruit to go with complex violets, spring flowers, olive and hints of pepper and meatiness. A medium to full-bodied effort, it has outstanding richness and depth as well as fine tannin and nicely integrated acidity, all of which come together beautifully on the finish. It's not a heavy weight, and while already approachable today (and I thoroughly enjoyed this bottle), it should be at its best from 2016-2024. (JD) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

K&L Notes

This is a lovely Northern Rhône producer from the esteemed Kermit Lynch stable of wines. Patrick is the fourth generation of his family to farm this domaine, which he does these days with the help of his wife Arlette. They care for five hectares of land—11 parcels in eight vineyards carved into the steeply terraced hillsides the region is known for. The vineyards are co-planted with massale selections of an ancient version of Syrah they call "la vieille sérine"—prized for its small berries, lower yields and exceptional aromatics—and Viognier (95%/5%), the latter of which adds incredible floral dimensions to the wine. This is a terroir-driven Côte-Rôtie that's made in a traditional manner, eschewing modern trends such as long macerations and use of new oak. Balanced and youthful now, with spice and dark berry fruit, this will put on weight and gain complexity in a cool cellar.
