Why We're Buying
Jean-Luc Jamet left Domaine Jemat in 2013 to start his own winery. His new flagship wine is Côte Rôtie Les Terrasses, a bold and unapologetic statement for syrah. Wine critic John Livingston-Learmonth has praised the red wine, awarding the 2016 vintage five out of five stars.
Brilliant ruby. Spice-tinged dark berry, floral pastille and smoky mineral scents show good delineation and a hint of olive paste. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that deepen and become sweeter with air. A touch of heat comes up with air and carries through the finish, which features gripping tannins and repeating florality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Jamet's 2015 Cote Rotie continues to show a ridiculous, impenetrable black-purple color. It's tight, full-bodied and firm, with black olive, cassis and blueberry fruit that doesn't seem to have budged since the day it was bottled. Give it another 5 years or so before popping a cork.
