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, ruddy red fruit and lots of spice.
The finest wines from the Côte Chalonnaise are known for their effortless beauty, with delicate aromas, fruit-driven flavors and silky textures. Burgundy from Domaine Michel Sarrazin et Fils both exemplifies this elegant style and sets an even higher standard for the region—each cru is unquestionably the finest in its class, yet still offers exceptional value. Visiting the family’s ancient estate in Jamblès, a hamlet of some 50 residents, is a bit like going back in time. The family’s winemaking roots run deep here, as there’s been a Sarrazin growing grapes and making wine in this peaceful valley as far back as the seventeenth century.
