The wines of Domaine Jamet are seen as a bench mark of Syrah and that of Cote Rotie. This family Domaine has 25 vineyards spread throughout the Cote Brune and Cote Blonde which Jean Paul knows intimately.

The grapes are partially destemmed (80%) before the parcels are vinified separately in a mixture of barrels for 24 months. 20% new, 20% one-year, 20% two-year, 40% three-year old oak barrels. Blue and black fruits, olives, cherries, smoke and violets with cracked black pepper.

Focused, methodical and strikingly fluid, this has slow momentum that builds and builds. Layers of complexity that punches all the right buttons, exceedingly coveted and wildly delicious.

Tasting Notes

95-98 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Scheduled to be bottled shortly after my visit, the 2019 Côte Rôtie has gorgeous, floral nuances that give way to more peppery, meaty, gamey notes that are the hallmark of this wonderful estate. Medium to full-bodied, it has considerable elegance and finesse on the palate (Jean-Paul compares this to his 2001 and 2007), silky tannins, and a beautiful finish. It’s going to have some up-front appeal as well as a broad drink window.

94-96 Points Vinous
A complex, assertively perfumed bouquet evokes smoky, mineral-accented blackberry, cherry, olive, violet candy and cracked pepper. Sweet, focused and penetrating on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit, floral pastille and cola flavors that steadily flesh out with aeration. The smoke and floral notes come back emphatically on a strikingly long, smooth finish that’s given shape by fine-grained, slowly mounting tannins.
