Jean-Luc Jamet - 'Couzou' - 2015
Côtes du Rhone, France
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. Couzou corresponds to the name of the plot. It is the only blended wine we offer. It combines the Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier grape varieties that are rarely found together in our region. The Marsanne dominant grape variety brings the body and the Viognier the length in the mouth. Roussanne, for its, part brings in a touch of liveliness which creates a very pleasant balance between the three grape varieties. Aging takes place in oak barrels and stainless steel vats over a period of 10-12 months depending on the year."- Jean luc Jamet.
