Domaine Jamet Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2018
Just when you think you have tasted the very best expression nature can offer, along comes another Rhone vintage which just leaves you speechless. It happened in 1989 / 90 in Bordeaux and here we are in the Rhone with an exceptional vintage from the legendary Domaine Jamet. 100% Syrah, from vineyards just outside the Côte Rôtie AOP, clay and schist soils, raised in large old oak barrels. Wonderfully lifted aromas of flowers and spice, bright cherry fruit, supple and mineral, smoke, very energetic, light to medium-bodied but intense and charming, primary yet subtle, flavoursome; very good length. Quite amazing for what it is; not just a Côtes du Rhône!
