Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "...soaring aromas of underbrush, herbed game, green coffee beans and white pepper to go with black cherry and blackberry-styled fruit. Medium to full-bodied, textured and layered, with fantastic precision and focus in the vintage…. (JD)" 93 points Vinous "Bright violet color. High-pitched red and dark berry aromas are complicated by Asian spices, potpourri and black pepper, with a smoky nuance sneaking up with aeration. Lively, focused and pure, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Silky tannins frame the sappy finish, which clings with impressive tenacity and appealing floral character. (JR)"

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.
