Domaine Jamet Côte-Rôtie 2020

R2,513.00

Domaine Jamet respects the terroir and a passion for wine in its work, in the heart of the Côte Rôtie hills. It took about 30 years for Jamet to gain the popularity it enjoys now. They are uncompromising in their philosophy and practices. Not driven by scores and wine writers, but by quality and conviction alone.

The Côte-Rôtie is produced from twenty parcels and essentially in whole bunches, the wine is subsequently kept in barrels for 22 months. The assemblage, a key word for Jean-Paul Jamet, with the variety of terroirs, exposure and the age of the vines all complementary elements that combine their strengths

This is a benchmark wine for many of South Africa’s top Syrah producers. You will here the name Jamet mentioned with respect when tasting with these winemakers, many of whom have spent at least one harvest with Jean-Paul. You’ll even hear some claiming that Porseleinberg 2018 is the most Jamet-like of all Syrah’s.

Description

Jean-Paul Jamet is arguably the leading producer in Côte-Rôtie and his approach has not changed over more than 40 vintages. He continues to produce hauntingly beautifully, but remarkably traditional wines. The wines of Domaine Jamet appeal to wine lovers around the world seeking classic, tensioned wines that show honesty and the soil in which they are grown. One of the most traditional wine producers in Cote-Rôtie, Jean-Paul blends 25 parcels, mostly from the Côte Brune, and uses little new oak and most of the stems. His maturations are longer than most and his wines are released later than other producers. Jean-Paul is slowly handing over custodianship of one of France’s great domaines to his son, Loïc.
