Popped and poured and the nose is incredible right off the bat. Crushed fresh grapes/magical grape soda. Lifted purple and blue fruit. Flowers. Tart and so transparent with a piquant, foxy, brambly, currant-y quality that keeps your nose in the glass. Wow, this is such a pleasure to drink. Keeps going with blood, gravel, mint, subtle smoke and lingering sweetness. I love this wine and I’m kicking myself for only buying 2 bottles. So elegant, insane value.
Holy shit. 24 hours and this is singing. 9.4–>9.5 — a month ago

Very reductive at first. Air did this well. Juicy black fruit. Brine. High toned. Tasty with burgers. — 4 months 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. — a month ago
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. — 2 months ago
