Classicism in Côte-Rôtie:
2013 Jamet Cote-Rotie

Posted by Joe Salamone

The utterly classic 2013 northern Rhône vintage is one of our favorites of the past couple of decades.

The wines are structured, mineral, and have a vibrant core of acidity.

Of course, Jamet's 2013 Côte-Rôtie is among the best of the vintage. We love Jamet in higher acid vintages, and the 2013 highlights why.

Jamet's 2013 Côte-Rôtie hits a level of gracefulness and agility that's reminiscent of Burgundy. This is Côte-Rôtie in unmediated glory, boasting a poise and detailed expression of mineral, herbs, spice, savory elements, and florality. The aromatics simply soar.

You can find deeper and more powerful examples, but for us, Syrah is at its best when it's energetic, mineral, and finessed. That's what you'll find here.
