Domaine Jamet

Domaine Jamet is a reference point for classically styled Côte-Rôtie. Founded in 1950 by Joseph Jamet with just barely one acre of vineyards, the property initially sold their crop to negociants. The Jamet brothers, Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc, took over from their father in 1991 and eventually expanded the domaine to 8 hectares.

The domaine of Jamet is located in Le Vallin, not far from the hilltop just behind Ampuis. The altitude and nature of the soil types in the 25 plots spread across 17 lieux-dits has the biggest influence of character on the wines. Every year the fruit is carefully selected from these sites to craft a highly nuanced wine of perfume, silky texture, and age worthy finesse. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wines are aged in barrel for 18-22 months. No fining or filtering occurs.

Today, Jean-Paul his wife, Corinne, run the domaine and have made improvements to the estate by instigating soil studies and installing gravity-fed systems into their winery. While Jean-Luc left the family domaine, it is certain that the excellence of Jamet will not change.
