Description
 
A true vigneron, Jean-Michel tends to four blocks on the dauntingly steep slopes of Côte Rôtie himself, where the grapes eventually end up in his tiny winery of just 4x 1000L stainless steel open top fermenters and a handful of puncheons and barriques. He works mostly with Syrah, Sérine, said to be the parent grape of Syrah, and one small block of Viognier on the flat between the slopes and the river. His wines are always hand-harvested, hand-sorted, whole-bunch fermented and are handled as anaerobically as possible winery so just the smallest dose of sulphur dioxide (<20ppm) at bottling is enough to ensure stability in the bottle for years to come.

“So’Brune” is a single parcel belonging to the village of Vernay, in the côte brune. The parcel is built with Syrah and Viognier terrasses. Mica schist bring more structure so the viognier calms the Syrah expressions. Everything is worked by hand and with a winch.
