Jamet Rarity, Only Bottles in the U.S.
2016 Jamet Cote-Rotie Half-Bottles

Posted by Joe Salamone

Jamet's Côte-Rôties have few peers in the entire northern Rhône.

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

Half-bottles of Jamet are very rare - these are the only 2016s available in the United States. Anytime I see Jamet in this format, I buy all that I can. For a wine that benefits from age, drinking a half-bottle allows you a sneak peek of what's to come. The wine is expressive earlier and Jamet's elegant rendition of Côte-Rôtie always shows nicely in this format right out of the gate.

Jamet’s Côte-Rôtie hits a level of gracefulness and agility that’s 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.

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.

Jamet is one of the top names in the northern Rhône. There's no point dragging this out. I'll just mention that we have a very limited number of half-bottles, so I'd advise that you move quickly on this.
