Côte-Rôtie In Full Glory: 2016 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

Posted by Joe Salamone

Jamet's Côte-Rôties are long standing benchmarks of the Northern Rhône. We're going to keep this short.

The heights that their Côte-Rôties reach have few peers in the entire Northern Rhône.

Jamet hits a level of gracefulness and agility that’s reminiscent of Burgundy. This is Côte-Rôtie in full glory, flaunting a poise and detailed expression of minerals, herbs, spice, savory elements and florality. The aromatics simply soar.

They are amazingly elegant, precise and clear. It's pretty much that simple.

The 2016 is one of the most exciting vintages of Côte-Rôtie that we've ever seen from Jamet. The easiest way to situate it stylistically is to say that it's a cross between 2010 and 2015. It's powerful and deep while having a driving minerality and pristine verve. The combination is a dream brew.

Before closing, I should mention that our parcel is smaller than it has been in previous vintages and that we expect a quick sell out. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
