History
Patrick Jasmin farms along the infamous terraces of Cote Rotie in the Northern Rhone - hard work that he jokingly calls "la galere," like a ship's galley. Growing grapes on some of the most precipitous, terraced parcels of the Rhone can be back-breaking work, but Patrick loves it. Answering only to himself in the midst of celebrated vineyard land, he's as independent and they come with an insatiable appetite for adventure and risks. (In addition to holding the title of the French National Kart-Cross Champion in 2000, he has developed a new passion for car track racing.) As the fourth generation to farm the family Domaine, at first alongside both his father and grandfather and now on his own, he remains grounded in tradition. Patrick and his wife Arlette (the business whiz of the family), tend to eleven parcels of land in eight lieux-dits, totaling a mere five hectares of land. It's a remarkable amount of work considering the challenging nature of the terrain and its inaccessibility to tractors. Therefore, at Domaine Jasmin everything is done by hand, of course with the exception of the punch-downs which are by foot. Cote Rotie is one of the oldest vineyard areas in France; its sun-baked slopes were first planted by the Romans over two thousand years ago. Beyond the optimal sun exposure, the pedigree of the land stems from the minerals, rich in varied soils from schist and granite to clay, gneiss, and limestone. The Jasmin's vineyards are co-planted with ninety-five percent Syrah and five percent Viognier; the traditionally planted Viognier lends terrific floral aromas to this wine over time.
