What the Critics say
A complex, assertively perfumed bouquet evokes smoky, mineral-accented blackberry, cherry, olive, violet candy and cracked pepper. Sweet, focused and penetrating on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit, floral pastille and cola flavors that steadily flesh out with aeration. The smoke and floral notes come back emphatically on a strikingly long, smooth finish that's given shape by fine-grained, slowly mounting tannins.
Located high above the town of Ampuis, Domaine Jamet was founded in the 1950's by Jean-Pauls father Joseph.

The grapes are partially destemmed (80%) before the parcels are vinified separately in a mixture of barrels for 24 months. 20% new, 20% one-year, 20% two-year, 40% three-year old oak barrels.
