Jamet: From VdF to Côte Brune

Posted by Ian McFadden

The heights that Jean-Paul Jamet reaches has few peers in the entire northern Rhône.

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

Today, I'm very happy to present a wide range of Jamet, covering everything from his VdF Les Plaisirs d'Harys to his rare Côte-Rôtie Côte Brune.

Jamet’s wines are known for profound elegance and ageability. Both of Jamet's Côtes du Rhônes are thrilling wines that are hunted down by those in the know. Les Plaisirs d'Harys was first released in 2015 and is mainly sourced from an 0.14ha parcel above Ampuis. It's bottled in magnums because it's an absolutely joyous Syrah intended to be drunk with friends.

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 Côte Brune is his top bottling and it's painfully rare. It comes from a tiny parcel of old vines. It's an utterly captivating wine - a monument to the greatest that Côte-Rôtie has to offer. 

l am going to wrap this up. Jamet is one of the long-standing benchmarks of the northern Rhône. You can expect many of the wines below to sell out quickly.
