The brothers Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc Jamet produce only two wines from their holdings in Cote Rotie, one of which is not imported into the U.S. The straight Cote Rotie bottling, a blend of many sites, is one of the classic wines of the appellation. Traditional in style, the wine is firm and will require at least a decade to unfold. The 2006 version is a classic example of the Jamet style. A hint of dark fruits are noticeable on the tightly wound nose, and the wine is powerful on the palate. The tannins are firm, but they are balanced by concentrated fruit. While obviously young, this wine shows the potential of a great wine.
