Cote-Rotie 'Les Terrasses' 2017 (750 ml.) - Jean-Luc Jamet

'Les Terrasses' by Jean-Luc Jamet is a bold and structured red, a pure Syrah. Jean-Luc Jamet is an icon who produces some of the most exquisite wines of the Côte-Rôtie. Its ability to merge more than 10 different plots from the best northern sites is tremendous. A mosaic of complex and rocky soils composed of different grades of schist and granite that underline the extraordinary depth of character of the wine. Many nuances in this delicate and very complex Syrah. Red to dark berry spectrum along with an iron earthiness. Sensations of dark berry fruit, savory salami and baker spice and menthol on the aftertaste. To be enjoyed in combination with hearty red meat dishes. Great until 2030.

THE COMPANY

Jean-Luc Jamet is one of the most iconic producers of Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône. His journey began in 1991, working alongside his brother Jean-Paul at the famed family estate “Domaine Jamet”. The magnificent Domaine occupied some of the the best parts of Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône – but in 2013, the brothers parted ways and split the 16 hectare estate into equal halves. With a brand-new winery (literally separated by one wall to his brother’s) and the same marvellous vineyards at hand, Jean-Luc – the ‘phoenix’ of Côte Rôtie – started a new adventure. He now applies his craft in making wines of extreme delicacy to his own exacting taste and standards. Jean-Luc has always sought to plant and grow vineyards in the best parts of Côte-Rôtie, both on Côte Blonde and – more commonly – on Côte Brune. His preferred and famous areas such as “Lancement”, “Chavaroche”, “La Landonne”, “Les Moutonnes”, “Les Rochins”  are recognized as complex, Syrah suitable land composed of schist and granite.
