The Perennial Overachiever
2016 Jamet Syrah Collines Rhodaniennes IGP

Posted by Joe Salamone

In the Northern Rhône, 2016 is shaping up to be an absolutely beautiful vintage.

For people who love classically styled vintages (think of 2010 and 2013), this will be an important vintage.

As always, Jamet's 2016 Collines Rhodaniennes is one of the smartest Northern Rhône buys you can make. The Collines Rhodaniennes delivers an irresistible combination of soulfulness and pure drinkability.

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.

The 2016 Collines Rhodaniennes is amazingly vibrant and concentrated. There's nicely delineated red fruits, herbs, spice, game and earth. Overall, this is a vintage where the wine has a lovely elegance and subtle complexity.

Every year, Jamet's Collines Rhodaniennes is one of our most popular Northern Rhône offers. The finesse, value and deliciousness it offers is very compelling. Stock up now, because this is a wine that never sticks around for very long.
