About the Domaine:
Domaine Jamet respects the terroir and a passion for wine in its work, in the heart of the Côte Rôtie hills.
The Domaine Jamet lies on a plateau, known as "Le Vallin", with a fabulous view where Mont Blanc and the Alps can be seen in good weather. Entering the storehouse, nature and simplicity seem to be the Jamet family's key words, focused on the artisanal nature of the place. This is where Jean-Paul, his wife Corinne and, more recently their elder son Loïc cultivate vines and wines with a passion.

Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - James Suckling:
"A core of ripe blackberries, bright, dark cherries and wild raspberries. Supple, fleshy fruit here. A selection of parcels aimed at delivering a rounder, fruit-focused and fleshy red for immediate pleasure. Drink or hold." (7/20/2018)
93 Points - Vinous Media:
"Inky violet. Lively blackberry, cherry liqueur and olive scents are complemented by a suave floral element. Sweet, seamless and focused on the palate, which offers primary black/blue fruit liqueur, violet pastille and black pepper flavors. The juicy, sharply delineated finish features subtle tannins, bright mineral cut and shows impressive persistence." - Josh Raynolds (4/2020)
