Punching Above Its Weight-Class:
2015 Jamet Collines Rhodaniennes IGP

Posted by Joe Salamone

In any vintage, Jamet's Collines Rhodaniennes is a soulful quaffer of the highest order.

The 2015 is something much more.

By now, word is out about the 2015 in the Northern Rhône. Like many other regions in 2015, the wines have an amazing combination of power, verve and clarity.

While you'll find plenty of great wines from Cornas, Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, some of the vintage's greatest successes are the "little wines." Simply put, they punch well above their weight class.

Jamet's 2015 Collines Rhodaniennes is one of the smartest buys you'll make this vintage.

Jamet has long been the standard bearer for traditional Côte-Rôtie, and the Collines Rhodaniennes demonstrates Jamet's high caliber of winemaking. The wine flaunts the complexity, perfume and elegance that Syrah is capable of while also showing an unabashed deliciousness. This is a bottle that the staff brings home often and in quantity.

Collines Rhodaniennes is an IGP designation for vines grown more or less around Côte-Rôtie. Jamet's bottling also includes young Côte-Rôtie fruit.

In 2015, the Collines Rhodaniennes has serious presence along with startling finesse, detail and nuance. There's deep savory notes of herbs, game, smoke and earth plus soaring top notes of red fruits, spice and flowers.

As much as the 2015 Collines Rhodaniennes brings to the table in terms of structure and complexity, it retains the gulpable joyous quality that makes us love the wine so much. This is a wine that you’ll want to have on hand in quantity, and we created special, very sharp 6-pack pricing for that reason. Stock up now, because this is a wine that never sticks around for very long.
