Cotes du Rhone rouge L'enclave 2019
Vignoble Jean Luc Jamet
- RegionRhone Valley,
"It takes it's name from the geographical particularity of the plot, which is surrounded by vines in the Cote-Rotie appellation. Only this plot of around 1 hectare is in Cote-du-Rhone. Made from 100% Syrah grapes, it is aged for 10-12 months in oak barrels of different volumes. The enclave is ample with a lot of flexibility, which offers a very good overview of the power of this grape."-Jean Luc Jamet
Producer: Vignoble Jean Luc Jamet
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.
