Reviews 98-100 points Wine Advocate "...combines intense violet notes with mixed berries in a full-bodied wine that boasts incredible concentration yet never seems overly rich or heavy. Briny, fresh, silky and long, it's another tour de force from the talented Jamet family. (JC)" 96-97 points Vinous "Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of ripe black/blue fruits, candied flowers, olive and exotic spices show outstanding clarity and a hint of smokiness. Sweet, chewy and focused on the palate, offering deeply concentrated blackberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that show serious energy for their brawn. A vibrant mineral nuance drives an extremely long, youthfully tannic finish that leaves behind a suave violet note. (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.
