The finest wines from the Côte Chalonnaise are known for their effortless beauty, with delicate aromas, fruit-driven flavors, and light, silky textures. The wines from Domaine Michel Sarrazin et Fils exemplify this elegant style and set an even higher standard for the region. Their crus are unquestionably the finest in their class yet offer exceptional value. What sets their wines apart is their quality and ability to transcend expectations. They are not just judged against the best of Givry but are often compared with the best of the Côte d'Or.

 

A visit to the Sarrazin family's ancestral estate in Jamblès nestled atop a hill in this quaint hamlet of around 50 inhabitants, is akin to stepping back in time. The Sarrazin family's winemaking legacy runs deep. In the mid-1990s, brothers Guy and Jean-Yves took over the family's winemaking legacy from their father, Michel. This was not just a passing of the torch but a continuation of a rich history that began in the seventeenth century. 

 

The family's vineyards are a testament to their commitment to sustainable winemaking. They avoid using herbicides and pesticides, ensuring the wines are of the highest quality and environmentally friendly. The winemaking process is a testament to a commitment to quality. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled cement tanks. The wines are then aged in a combination of the highest-quality (both new and older) Francois Frères oak barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered, preserving the true essence of the vineyard. 

 

2022 Michel Sarrazin et Fils Givry 'Sous La Roche'

Coming from 40+-year-old vines on one of Givry's highest-altitude vineyards, this rocky, iron-rich plot ('Sous La Roche' means 'under the rock') delivers a wine of structure and substance with aromas of violets, raspberries, and a hint of licorice—silky and refined flavors of red plums and black cherries.
