Winemaker Notes

#90 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Jean-Michel Stephan Cote-Rotie is a wine of marked class, elegance and structure. Histoically a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier, the wine comes from young vines in the Coteau de Bassenon and Les Bercheries, and aged 24 months in neutral oak.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A hint of reduction quickly gives way here to a wild mix of bramble, steeped blackberry, roasted fig, melted licorice, tar and dark tapenade notes, which all weave together through a singed iron finish that shows serious length. Syrah with 10 percent Viognier. Best from 2012 through 2022. 100 cases imported.

Domaine Jean-Michel Stephan, Cote Rotie, Rhone, France
Image of winery
Former Guigal assistant Jean-Michel Stephan's modest domaine consists of eight ares of mostly old vines in various parcels on Cote Rotie's Cote Blonde, and 3.2 acres in neighboring Condrieu. His holdings include a high percentage of prized Serine, the expressive, small berry ancestor of Syrah.

The majority of the domaine's vines are in two perfectly-situated hillside lieux-dits: the Coteaux de Tupin and the Coteaux de Bassenon. Jean-Michel's home and cellar are in the tiny village of Tupin-Semons at the base of the Coteaux de Tupin. The Bassenon site is on the southern border of the appellation next to Condrieu. With the sure-footedness of a mountain goat, Jean-Michel tends these steep hillside vineyards entirely from various parcels, but he also isolates the domaine's two distinct terroirs in separate, limited production bottlings.
