The key to a Jamet Côte-Rôtie's fantastic complexity and balance is Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc's array of terroirs within the appellation. They have 25 plots spread across 17 lieux-dits. Every year the Jamet brothers carefully select from these sites to craft a highly nuanced wine of haunting perfume, silky texture, elegance and finesse.
