Jean-Luc Jamet, Cotes du Rhône ‘L’Enclave’ 2019, Rhône – France

£40.00

In stock

The Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge ‘L’Enclave’ is very much a ‘petit Côte-Rôtie’ from Champrond and Bonnivieres, while the IGP Syrah is planted on schist soils near the domaine at Le Vallin.

On the nose there are floating aromas of violets, soaked black cherries, flint, smoke and a lovely savouriness all throughout. The palate is tender though driven and structure with plenty of voluptuous fruits. The finish is clean and refreshing.

Description

Jean-Luc Jamet worked for many years alongside his brother Jean-Paul, at the iconic family estate, Domaine Jamet. In 2013 the brothers split the 16 hectare estate evenly, into two 8 hectare properties.

From the new beginning in 2013, Jean-Luc was not willing to buy second hand barrels so all barrels were new. This meant the early vintages were a little oaky but the latest vintages have great balance and are seriously impressive.

The majority of the barrels are 300 litres, with the balance made up of 20% 228 litre and 20% 500 litre casks. Generally 35% of the production is made with whole bunches, with the remaining 65% destemmed to emphasise the floral, elegant style and he only uses wild yeasts.

The vineyard comprises 4.5 hectares of Côte-Rôtie, 2 hectares of Côtes-du-Rhône, and 1 hectare of Vin de Pays. The Terrasses Côte-Rôtie is 100% Syrah and includes 0.9 ha Mornachon, 0.8 ha Chavaroche, 0.7 ha Lancement, 0.6 ha Bonnivières, as well as small parcels across Côte Baudin, La Landonne, Les Moutonnes, Les Rochains, Tartaras and Fongeant.
