​This Côte du Rhône Blanc is fresh, fragrant and complex.

Jean-Luc Jamet is an iconic producer of the North Rhône Valley, home to the best Syrah the world has to offer. The Couzou cuvée of Côte du Rhône comes from within Côte-Rôtie appellation in Bonnivières in the Côte Brune.

The colour is shiny yellow. it has a nicely open nose with pear and apricot with a thread of infused tea, clarity, dried fruits. There is comfortable gras on the attack, with swift grip, a tightening after the squeezy first delivery. White fruits, saline moments appear towards the finish, as well as a touch of honey. This has good character. The Viognier leaves a good plumpness and texture. It has structure, nice length. 60% Marsanne, 20% Roussanne, 20% Viognier (early-mid 1980s) from 1 hectare on quite deep soils on Bonnivières & Champron in Côte-Rôtie. It can be paired with prawns, roast chicken, grilled barramundi. Drink now or keep in the cellar up to 2024+.

"The Côte du Rhône white from Jean-Luc Jamet has such a striking freshness and yet, there is great depth with an almost oily like texture to the wine. A very impressive effort here".
