Jamet's Côte-Rôtie is a long-standing benchmark of the Northern Rhône.
Today, we focus on a different expression of Jamet, the Côte-Rôtie Fructus Voluptas.
The first vintage of Fructus Voluptas was 2008. The intention was to significantly depart from the winemaking of the flagship Côte-Rôtie. Fructus Voluptas sees little to no stem inclusion and is sourced from younger vines. This yields a more fruit-driven and immediate lens to view Jamet's winemaking.
Fructus Voluptas has Jamet's signature finesse but achieves this with darker fruits and more overt florality. There is a serious undercurrent of crushed rock, smoke, and herbal notes. The 2021 combines floral-tinged purple fruits with a vibrant core and polished minerality.
The wine is even harder to find in quantity than the regular Côte-Rôtie. This is the first time that we've been able to offer Fructus Voluptas. I should close by warning that this is a very modestly sized parcel. It's likely to sell out quickly.
