About this winery
Located high above the town of Ampuis and the Rhône River, Domaine Jamet produces tiny quantities of stunning Côte-Rôtie. The estate was founded in the 1950’s by Joseph Jamet and he began domaine bottling in 1976. In 1991 his son’s Jean-Luc and Jean-Paul took charge of the business slowly acquiring small parcels to expand the estate. Jean-Luc left in 2013 and today Jean-Paul and his wife Corrine run 7 hectares of beautiful vineyards. The estate is spread across 16 different lieux-dits...

Notes about product
This grapes for this wine come from 3 different parcels. The first is a young-vine Côte Rôtie. The second is mica schist terroir on a plateau next to Domaine (and outside of Côte Rôtie), and the final parcel is from a plateau above Condrieu.
The grapes are 90% de-stemmed, macerated for a two week period, and are aged for 12 months in older barriques (5-6 years of age).
A stunning wine that is one of the best values you can find. Some even call it a baby Côte Rôtie with its pretty red and black fruit, peppery aromas and a savory note of bacon. On the palate, the wine is soft, elegant, and balanced.
