Having vinified over 30 vintages of Côte-Rôtie, Jean-Michel Stephan is one of the true masters of natural winemaking in the Northern Rhône. His wines have a vivacious purity that make them instantly identifiable, marked by a balance of energy and transcendence that comes from a lifetime pursuit of his vision to craft flawless wines with absolutely no additives.
The Côteaux de Tupin comes exclusively from 100% Serine vines, an older variety of Syrah found only around Côte-Rôtie that has lower yields but incredible quality. Part of the vineyard was planted in 1941, which is blended together with the Serine vines that Jean-Michel planted in the late 1990s
