Description
 
Since the later 1980s, Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc had run their fathers’ domain with impeccable care and steadfastly traditional values. After joint winemaking in the eighties, there developed a sensible division of labour. Jean-Luc focussed on the vineyards, and Jean-Paul focussed on the winemaking. The domain is now split. Physically a wall runs down the middle of the estate and one winery is on one side, one on the other. The vineyards have been shared. Jean-Paul keeps the Cote Brune jewel, but, 4 hectares have been hewn from the original seven and both brothers have augmented to keep production of the two different estates relatively similar. Jean-Luc’s 5 hectare Cote-Rotie holdings are: - Côte Bodin: 0,2 ha, Bonnivières: 0,6 ha, Chavaroche: 0,7 ha, Lancement: 0,75 ha, La Landonne: 0,17 ha, Mornachon: 0,86 ha, Les Moutonnes: 0,43 ha, Les Rochins: 0,3 ha, Tartaras: 0,13 ha In addition to those prime northern vineyard sites, he also holds 2 hectares of CDR and IGP, mostly from the plateau around the winery, Vallin and Bonniviere, the area where the domaines’ popular VDP and IGP wines were sourced.

The 2016 Cote Rotie shows lovely black cherry and dark berry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, supple mouthfeel and a long, silky finish. It's not the most nuanced Côte Rôtie out there, but it's certainly satisfying, and it should continue to gain complexity over the next decade or so. Wine Advocate 93
