"Can a 97-point wine be considered a disappointment? Jamet's 2016 Cote Rotie Cote Brune has never looked better than the first summer after the harvest. Since then, it has seemed less exuberant every time I've tried it. It's full-bodied and plush, with plum and roasted-meat nuances, and there are hints of mocha and black olives on the long, silky finish. It delivers oodles of pleasure, faithfully reflects its origins and by any other standard is a super wine, but it falls short of the perfection I initially hoped for." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Inky ruby. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black/blue fruits, star anise, olive, potpourri and licorice. A smoky mineral accent builds steadily in the glass. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering vibrant, spice-laced dark berry liqueur, smoky bacon and floral pastille flavors that are firmed by a core of juicy acidity. Clings with superb tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, leaving behind sappy blue fruit, floral and mineral notes." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"So scented and powerful on the nose, but the palate closes down a bit. Very fierce tannin. Spice on the palate with oak influence lingering in the shadows. Bold, strong, rich and yet superbly balanced." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
