2019 Jean Luc Jamet Valine Syrah

$60.00

Hearing the name Jamet immediately brings the phrase ‘Great Côte-Rôtie’ to our mind. It’s now eight years since the two brothers of that name split the iconic family domain between them. Jean-Luc had worked the vineyards and was responsible for delivering the fruit that brought worldwide fame to the name, known for the fragrance of Syrah and its atomic intensity.

He now owns eight hectares of vines. These are comprised of four in Côte-Rôtie spread across 10 different plots. Added to this are two in Côte du Rhône (red and white) and the same in IGP-classified plots (Valine). This Jamet Valine Syrah comes from Cote Rotie and is a site set just above the commune of Ampuis. Although the vines are not in the classified appellation, the actual site is a little different.

His Collines-Rhodaniennes red is from the Northern Rhone Valley. It is precise and linear, both laser-sharp and seamlessly silky. A superb balance has been struck between a piercing savoury red and black berry concentration of the fruit and truly subtle notes of black liquorice, graphite and stony schist liquid minerality and welcome salinity.
