About this Item

2005 - 2008 Côte-Rôtie
6 (6 x 1) 750ml

Jean-Paul Jamet is arguably the leading producer in Côte-Rôtie and his approach has not changed over more than 40 vintages. He continues to produce hauntingly beautifully, but remarkably traditional wines. The wines of Domaine Jamet appeal to wine lovers around the world seeking classic, tensioned wines that show honesty and the soil in which they are grown. One of the most traditional wine producers in Cote-Rôtie, Jean-Paul blends 25 parcels, mostly from the Côte Brune, and uses little new oak and most of the stems. His maturations are longer than most and his wines are released later than other producers. Jean-Paul is slowly handing over custodianship of one of France’s great domaines to his son, Loïc.

Critics Ratings


‘Jamet’s 2005 Côte-Rôtie is still tight and backwards, with almost no evolution in its blackberry, bouquet garni, violets and olive-scented bouquet. Medium-bodied, fresh, pure and lively, with bright acidity and notable tannin, give bottles another 3-4 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following decade.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 91/100 (Mar 2016)

‘Bright ruby. Compelling aromas of candied red berries, sandalwood, fresh violet and lavender and pipe tobacco. Finely etched red and dark berry flavors are wonderfully concentrated and fresh, with impressive back-end lift and energy. Becomes livelier with air, finishing with outstanding clarity and focus. I underestimated this wine last year, just before it was bottled.’ – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 95/100 (Jan 2009)


‘Jean-Paul told me that 2006 was “a complex vintage to get even ripeness” and went on to say he “waited and waited to get ripe tannins.” He produced an outstanding wine and his 2006 Côte-Rôtie is more elegant than the '09 and offers up pretty aromas and flavors of spice, smoked meats, pepper, currants and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity and fine tannin, it doesn't have the depth of top vintage, but is charming, silky and drinking beautifully.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 92/100 (Sep 2015)


‘So distinctive, with fresh bay leaf, leather, pepper and tobacco notes leading the way, followed by mulled plum, currant and cherry fruit. Lots of bitter cherry and charred apple wood drive through the very long finish, which is thoroughly mouthwatering thanks to its acidity. Best from 2013 through 2025.’ – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 94/100 (2012)

‘Deep ruby. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, kirsch, licorice, violet and smoky Indian spices. Firm and intense, with alluring sweetness and fleshiness to the red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors. The very fine tannins quickly fade into the high-pitched fruit on the smoky, minerally back end. This is very pretty and impressively complex right now; I'd drink it before the less-evolved 2006.’ – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 93/100 (Jan 2010)


‘Vivid red. Highly fragrant, displaying scents of red berries, rose and baking spices, with a hint of white pepper. Smells like a sexy Burgundy. Lithe and precise raspberry and cherry flavors show a suave blend of sweetness and energy, with zesty acidity adding lift. Finishes on a nervy mineral note, with an excellent, floral-dominated persistence. I underestimated this wine when I tasted it last year.’ – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100 (Jan 2011)
