Lovely mineral-laden scents of blueberry, spiced Damson plum and florals greet the nose. Much like it's little Côtes du Rhône, it is quite lively on the palate. This ethereal wine shows the trademark pastille flavours along with raspberry compote, cassis and smoky black cherry as it unfurls. It finishes with fine beautiful fine tannins and a long vibrant mineral drive. This is a very serious wine but incredibly beautiful at the same time. We advise cellaring it correctly for at least 8 years before drinking.
Match with venison pie or slow roasted beef rib with a wild mushroom sauce.

Domaine Jamet was established by Joseph Jamet in the early 1950s in Côte-Rôtie. The harvest was primarily sold to the negociants of the region. But Joseph Jamet wanted more than this and began producing wine under his own name in 1976. The story went on and the domain was inherited by the sons of Joseph, Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc who managed to raise the name, quality and reputation to new heights.
In 2013, Jean-Luc left the family business and Domaine Jamet was hereby run by Jean-Paul, who along with his wife Corinne has continued to develop the brand and made Domaine Jamet the producer of some of the most sought-after wines from the Northern Rhône.
