Tasting Notes

Tasted, as usual, in components. #1) Les Lezards: bright red fruit, flowers and spices; seamless texture and a zesty mineral overtone that builds with air. #2) Gerine: smoke-accented blue fruits and plush texture; round and weighty with a jolt of pepper adding back-end spiciness and cut. #3) Fontgeant: hugely aromatic, showing intense, mineral-driven medicinal cherry and floral character, a hint of olive and strong back-end thrust. #4) Côte Baudin and Moutonne: deep and rich, showing powerful black and blue fruit qualities and a candied licorice flourish. Plenty of weight here and an intensely spicy back half. #5) Moutonne, Côte Rozier, Côte Blonde and Rochains: sexy, mineral-tinged red and blue fruits and candied flowers on the nose; sweet and seamless in texture, with sneaky tannins adding framework and final grip. #6) Fontgeant, Bonnivière, Tartaras and Leyat: vibrant and sharply focused, showing intense, mineral-tinged blue fruit and floral qualities and an exotic Asian spice overtone; the mineral note dominates with air. #7) Le Plomb: hugely aromatic, displaying red fruit preserve, incense and exotic spice qualities, silky texture and impressive power as well as a delicate finishing touch. #8) La Landonne: wild, expansive dark berry liqueur, olive and licorice qualities and serious heft and breadth; livelier with air, but this is a massive bruiser. The final wine should show Jamet's typical blend of power and finesse and it also looks to be a more brawny wine than many other '16s from the appellation, displaying some of the richness that I associate with the 2015s. tannins. At 3.95, the pH is even higher than that of the '97 made here. This has the balance to offer early pleasure or to be cellared for a decade or more. 95-97 points. - Josh Reynolds Vinous, June 2018

Jean-Paul Jamet split the with his brother a few years ago now and he seems to be getting along quite well. The estate has expanded to cover 8.5 hectares of the "roasted slope", spread over more than 20 separate plots (see below the separated barrel tasting notes). The range of terroirs offers a rich and varied palate from which to blend complex and special wine, year in, year out. Even in a poor year, Jamet's Côte Rôtie is never 'green'. It is a hedonistic wine, a veritable explosion of intense, peppery black fruit, and quite simply delicious.

‘Aside from Guigal, I know of no other producer with such extensive experience with so many of Côte Rôtie's various lieux-dits. Tasting at Jamet hilltop cellar is always a study in geology and microclimate more than anything else, as the winemaking is resolutely traditional. All of the Côte Rôtie parcels are vinified as whole bunches, and there's still only a small proportion of new wood in the cellars, so it's possible to really taste nuances in the various barrels. Jean-Paul Jamet is always gracious with his time and wine, making it a true pleasure to visit.’ - Joe Czerwinski
