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.

Winemaking notes

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).

Tasting notes

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.

Josh Raynolds, September 2019

Deep lurid ruby. Ripe cherry, black raspberry and violet on the perfumed nose. Round and fleshy in the mouth, offering juicy dark fruit, smoked meat and cracked pepper flavors that pick up a sweetening hint of cola on the back half. Finishes smooth and long, showing good energy and fine-grained tannins that come in late.
