Based on 2 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "It's medium to full-bodied and dark-fruited, with no obvious stemmy notes. Cassis and blueberries glide silkily across the palate, finishing long and intense. (JC)" 93 points Vinous "Opaque ruby. Incisive aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry, incense and potpourri, with olive and licorice nuances building in the glass. Intense, spice- and mineral-tinged black and blue fruit, olive paste and violet pastille flavors are supported by a core of juicy acidity. Closes very long and suavely floral, showing a smoky mineral quality and smooth tannins that build steadily. (JR)"

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.
