Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "...blackberry, bouquet garni, violets and olive-scented bouquet. Medium-bodied, fresh, pure and lively, with bright acidity and notable tannin…. (JD)" 95 points Vinous "Bright ruby. Compelling aromas of candied red berries, sandalwood, fresh violet and lavender and pipe tobacco. Finely etched red and dark berry flavors are wonderfully concentrated and fresh, with impressive back-end lift and energy. Becomes livelier with air, finishing with outstanding clarity and focus.

About Domaine Jamet
Domaine Jamet, located in the heart of Côte Rôtie, is a producer famed for crafting exceptional wines that capture the true essence of the terroir. Led by Jean-Paul Jamet, along with his wife Corinne and son Loïc, the domaine has been dedicated to sustainable farming since 1976.
With steep, terraced schist and granite slopes above the village of Ampuis, Domaine Jamet produces a staggering 19 single-vineyard Syrahs from some of the finest parcels in the appellation. Their winemaking philosophy revolves around minimal manipulation, allowing the wines to express themselves fully. Starting with whole-cluster fermentation, each parcel is vinified separately. Unlike others, the Jamets prefer the use of neutral vessels such as larger pieces and demi-muids, allowing for a more judicious integration of oak flavors. After aging for up to two years in barrels, the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered, resulting in remarkably silky, refined, and aromatic wines.
The vineyards of Domaine Jamet are situated on the steep hillsides and terraces known as chayets, characterized by schist and granite subsoils. Jean-Paul and his family have a deep respect for the land, striving to preserve and respect its exceptional nature. Their extensive experience and intimate knowledge of the terroirs enable them to craft highly nuanced wines with captivating perfumes, velvety textures, and remarkable balance.
Jean-Paul Jamet's unwavering dedication to preserving the authenticity of Côte Rôtie has established him as one of the appellation's greatest masters. The wines of Domaine Jamet, with their seductive textures and enchanting aromas, provide an exceptional and unforgettable wine-drinking experience, truly capturing the essence of this renowned region.
