Nose is wonderful. Deep, sensual Lilacs. Violets. Blackberries. Cherries. A hint of unground black pepper. A mere hint of game. As this opens you get this psychotic swirl.
Palate is slightly spicy late early season cherries. Super vibrant. A very Burgundian feel. Just that balance. The mouthfeel. Deliciously drinkable. Silky tanins. As this opens the cherries are more perfect mid season.

The ‘97 Jamet Côte Brune was hauntingly good captivating us all with its kaleidoscope array of aromas. Coal smoke, tar, bacon fat and scorched earth. Ethereal palate with so much depth, complexity and focused acidity. Very long finish. Ridiculously good for the vintage and definitely the best red of the evening. Jamet Côte Brune with age is the truth. — 23 days ago
I’m having a hard time evaluating this wine as it was closed upon opening. An hour splash decant filled the room with violet, pepper, iron and earth, but the palate was muted. The next day showed more, but didn’t feel like the wine was ready to reveal its secrets. All the elements of good quality Cote Rotie are present, and perhaps with a little more time, will blossom. — 5 days ago
