The quintessential classicist Jean-Paul Jamet is revered by those who love Cote Rotie of incredible nuance and ethereal balance. If perfume and texture’s your thing, Jamet Cote Roties are among the planet’s greatest wine experiences.
Jean-Paul has a quarter-century of experience working the Cote Rotie slopes, having taken charge of the family domaine upon father Joseph Jamet’s retiring in the mid-1980s. His approach to making this wine is “classicist”: he uses modern methods and he fiercely defends the idea that Cote Rotie should taste like Cote Rotie. Recently, Jean-Paul’s elder son, Loic, joined the domaine.
