Domaine Jamet – Syrah in the veins

Date: 31-Jul-2017

If you’re looking for blockbuster Côte Rôtie brimming with new oak and extract, you should look elsewhere. But if perfume and texture’s your thing, Domaine Jamet wines are among the planet’s greatest wine experiences.
 
For the past half century, the Jamet family has been one of the great growers in Côte Rôtie - one of the few producers remaining to still adhere to such important traditional practices. By continuing traditional practices, the Jamet family manages the vineyard with passion on the upper slopes of Ampuis in the heart of Northern Rhone.
 
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. Nature and simplicity are the best word to describe the Jamet family and their philosophy, focused on the artisanal nature of the place. In order to benefit from all that nature can offer, Jean-Paul considers that he and his team practice sustainable viticulture. Respectful of the vines and the soil, the vineyard workers at Domaine Jamet work throughout the year with a minimum of intervention.
 
Jean-Paul Jamet, his wife Corinne and, more recently their elder son Loïc tend a total of 17 ha of vines, 8 ha of which in Cote-Rotie, producing ethereal and divinely majestic wine without any regard to vintage at all.
 
As balance, consistency and knowledge sharing are the key words for this family, Jean-Paul told his son Loïc about developing a Condrieu, under the Domaine Jamet name. The future is assured!
