Jean-Luc Jamet - Côte-Rôtie "Les Terrasses" 2015

$220.00

This Côte-Rôtie "Les Terrasses" is all in balance, powerful and very complex.

Jean-Luc Jamet is an undeniable icon and celebrated producer, making some of the most exquisite Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône wines. Originally working with his brother Jean-Paul at the famed family estate "Domaine Jamet", they separated in 2013 due to their differences. The vineyards, comprising of 16 hectares in the best areas of Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône, were divided into two equal parts.

What makes the Côte-Rôtie wines from Jean-Luc Jamet so special is the blend of more than ten different plots of vineyards located in the northern part (considered the most qualitative) of Côte-Rôtie. It is a mosaïque of very different rocky soils composed of different degrees of schist and granit. These are the many shades that you'll find in this delicate and very complex wine. 

The bouquet is alluring with dense black berries, raspberry liqueur and cassis followed by beef stock, iron and oak smoke. The palate holds dense fruits cassis, soaked cherries, black fruits and has delicate minerality well placed through it, pine wood and silky tannin. Enjoy with hearty dishes red meat driven, lasagne and ragu. Drink now after 1 hr decant or lay down till 2030. 100% Syrah.  

"Coming Soon".

The 10 different plots on major slopes such as Lancement, La Landonne, Fongeant, Côte Bodin and Les Moutonnes, are schist-dominated and are all processed into one cuvée "Les Terasses". The ripeness of the fruit determines the harvest time and Jean-Luc is (together with his brother) one of the last in the region. The plots are partly vinified together and gradually "cross over" assembled and mounted. In addition to the use of a maximum of 20% new barrels (demi-muids and pièces) and 20 to 22 months of barrel aging, to gain complexity, Jean-Luc chooses to ferment 1/3 part in whole clusters.
