BACKGROUND

Located in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards near the village of Ampuis, Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin was created in 1983 with vines inherited from his father and grandfather and they began to bottle and sell under the Jean-Michel Gerin brand.
In 1988 Gerin made his first purchase of vines in Les Grandes Places and added to his holdings in 1989, with the purchase of land on La Landonne. Today, the estate covers nearly 30 acres in the Côte-Rôtie appellation where Jean has now been joined by his two sons, Michael and Alexis.

Terrior consists of micaschiste and granite soils on hillsides. After harvest, the grapes are destemmed and macerate for four weeks.

AGEING

Ageing takes place 60% in barrels and 40% in stainless steel tanks over 12 months.

TASTING NOTES

Notes of red fruits, fresh, vibrant, concentrated supple tannins with a smooth, round finish. Pairs well with red meats and cheeses.
