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
