Côte-Rôtie's Master:
2017 Jamet Côte-Rôtie Half-Bottles & Full-Bottles

Posted by Joe Salamone

Jamet's Côte-Rôties are long-standing benchmarks of the northern Rhône.

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

Today, we're happy to offer Jamet's 2017 Côte-Rôtie in half-bottles and full-bottles; both are very sharply priced.

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.

Jamet's 2017s Côte-Rôtie is fascinating. The vintage combines the ripeness and power of 2015 with a dose of the vibrant acid backbone and mineral imprint of 2016.

The 2017 Côte-Rôtie has an intense mineral spine and clear and detailed bright fruits. It has a lot of finesse and polish. Everything is sheathed in firm tannins.

I'll bring this to a close. Jamet's Côte-Rôties are long-standing benchmarks of the northern Rhône. The 2017 really underscores how fine-tuned the winemaking is.

Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media: "Inky, bright-rimmed ruby. Sexy, mineral-accented aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, candied flowers, olive paste and exotic spices show outstanding clarity and lift. Sweet, pliant and energetic on the palate, offering deeply concentrated raspberry, cherry, cassis and floral pastille flavors that show surprising energy for their heft. A smoky mineral nuance drives the extremely long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind a sexy floral note. All whole clusters."
