Domaine Jamet Condrieu Vernillon 2018


“Perhaps the best version of this wine I’ve tried, the 2018 Condrieu Vernillon (tasted from tank prior to bottling) features just the merest hint of toasty oak (80% was fermented and aged in amphorae) layered over tropical fruit and apricot notes. It’s full-bodied, round and lush but also spicy and complex, with a long, silky-textured finish.” Robert Parker\

In 2015, Les Jamet acquired a vineyard plot in Condrieu, giving rise to the cuvée “Vernillon” made from Viognier grapes grown on granite soils in Vernon and Côte Chatillon.

Powerful nose of apricot, peach, white flowers and citrus. Unctuous mouth offering a lot of complexity; the persistence in the mouth is impressive and the finish is more tense and mineral.

Condrieu from Jamet showcases the typical characteristics of the appellation, including lily, fresh peach, and rose aromas. However, it also offers a unique twist with a racy mineral and spicy touch. On the palate, the wine exhibits excellent balance and acidity, which beautifully counterbalances its rich and savory texture.

Jean-Paul Jamet began making wine alongside his father Joseph in 1976. He left school to start working with his parents in the family business. Together they developed the vine-growing and wine-making work but Jean-Paul quickly took the initiative and made decisions. With the experience of making forty wines he was convinced that the beauty of the wines lay in the terroirs. Having been away from any successive methods he promoted the different expressions of Côte Rôtie to increase their complementary features.
