Domaine Jamet Côte Rôtie, France 2020

Jean-Luc Jamet has a quarter-century of experience working the Côte Rôtie slopes, having taken charge, along with his brother, of the family domaine upon his father Joseph Jamets retiring in the mid-1980s. As a result, the Jamets have strong opinions on what influences the character of the wines from these different locations. For them, the nature of the soil is what matters most, followed by altitude. That is the key to this Côte Rôtie’s fantastic complexity and balance, the array of terroirs within the appellation - 25 plots spread across 17 lieux-dits. Every year Jean-Luc carefully select from these sites to craft a highly nuanced wine of haunting perfume, silky texture, elegance and finesse.

Grape: Syrah

Soil: The majority of their lieux-dits are on the Côte Brune, whose brown schist soils produce black fruited Syrah, with strong tannic structure and longevity. They have just two sites on Côte Blonde granite, and these provide the less structured floral, red fruit character that balances the Brune fruit so well.

Viticulture: Lutte Raisonne 

***** "dark red; blue fruit, restrained nose with deep elegance, lots to come, is well infused with iron, a hint of black olives. The palate mixes blood, iron, terroir in its veins, captures the imagination, has extended length, a note of chocolate, ripeness right at the end. It has a good full close, elegance there. From 2028 34 years OVERALL ****(*) this could be complex, interesting, less powered and flamboyant than the 2019, but still very well together. 2050-53 June 2021" - notes from Drink Rhone
