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

Posted by Joe Salamone

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

Jamet hits a level of gracefulness and agility that is reminiscent of Burgundy. This is Côte-Rôtie in full glory, flaunting a poised 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.

We're very happy to have another opportunity to offer Jamet's brilliant 2016 Côte-Rôtie.

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.

The 2016 is powerful and deep while having a driving minerality and pristine verve. The combination is a dream brew. The precision and harmony practically guarantees that the wine will age beautifully.

Jamet's Côte-Rôties are long standing benchmarks of the Northern Rhône. We'll wrap this up by saying that the 2016 is destined to be an important vintage for this historic domaine.
