About Domaine Jamet

Since 1976, Jean-Paul Jamet has farmed the steep, terraced schist and granite slopes above the village of Ampuis, the heart of the Côte Rôtie appellation. First starting out at Domaine Jamet alongside his father, and now with the help of his wife, Corinne, and eldest son, Loïc, Jean-Paul farms sustainably on the plateau of Le Vallin. Known for producing a staggering 19 single-vineyard Syrahs from some of the best parcels in the appellation, Jean-Paul is considered one of the great masters of the appellation.

The Jamets prefer a style of Côte Rôtie that allows the wine to speak for itself, with as little manipulation as possible. They start with whole-cluster fermentation, then vinify individual parcels separately. Where others flock to new oak, the Jamets shy away, preferring to use more neutral vessels like larger pieces and demi-muids for a more judicious expression of oak. Here, they age for up to two years in barrel before the Jamets bottle them unfined and unfiltered, resulting in incredibly silky, finessed and aromatic wines.
