The Jamet family winemaking story began in 1976 in the northern Rhone valley. Jean-Paul, just 16 years, began working with his father, Joseph. Together they’ve created a style of wine that has not just stood the test of time, but is unwavered in its style. In their terraced, rocky slopes, farming is often beyond difficult, but there wouldn’t be a better way to produce Syrah than in this method. While the tendencies of modern winemaking in this region stray towards more new oak and farming on flatter vineyards, they knew this would go against their style. A signature trait of their domain is the choice to blend fruit from multiple sites as they find this is the optimal way to showcase both Cote Rotie and Condrieu.
Vines range wildly from 5 to 85 years old coming from a range of 16 lieu dits across Cote Rotie. The wine undergoes whole cluster fermentation giving more texture and aging potential, as well as 22 months in multiple styles of barrels.
