DOMAINE JAMET

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Wow, zap. Hot streak here! A core Côte-Rôtie domaine, family-run, with a good, whole-hearted style of wine. The unpretentious classic rises to heights in the top years like 1998, 1999, 2005, 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2013. The Côte Brune is one of the best Côte-Rôties, a suitable legacy for the hard work of Joseph Jamet, who bought what was a tired vineyard in 1948. The advice is to leave the Côte-Rôties for at least eight years - they live for up to 30 years. There is also a really good Syrah vin de pays as well and a red Côtes du Rhône that can be way above its station in years such as 2010 to 2013, and 2015 and 2016 [both ****]. In 2015 the Jamets introduced a superior Côtes du Rhône called Equivoque from two plots next to their Côte-Rôtie Syrah on Cognet and Tartaras: this is super dooper, a real rocker with much character.

In 2015 son Loïc planted 0.46 hectare with massale Syrah on Cumelle at Côte-Rôtie. After the separation from Jean-Paul's brother Jean-Luc, the labels now read Corinne, Jean-Paul & Loïc Jamet as the producers. The Condrieu – first vintage 2015 - is very much Loïc’s baby; the plot was bought Christmas 2014, and has been supplemented with a patch of newly planted Vernon Viognier. It is now raised mostly in 500-litre amphorae, the rest in oak.
