Now at the seven year mark, the 2013 Jamet Cote Rotie is absolutely singing in its unbridled elegance. Silky and soft upon entry, the 2013 Jamet shows a pillowy effect as this artfully glides across the mid-palate. The lighter Provencale herb and white pepper tones meld with ripe raspberry and Bing cherry flavors. Bright, showing an intense sense of verve and tension, the long finish truly satisfies. While delightful at this stage, the 2013 Jamet Cote Rotie will have another decade or more ahead of it. This is truly one of the wines of the vintage. Drink 2020-2033- 95 — 4 hours ago
Gorgeous and deep nose. Cassis, some wood, sappy red berries, smoke, mineral, granite. Needs an hour I’d say. Will track.
Palate is so so 16. Clean, fresh, refined and ripe. Loads of red berry fruit, so juicy, concentrated and pure. Lovely dusty tannins. Very elegant. Long and terrific freshness. Still young and this note is only from 10 minutes open but beautiful wine. Terrific structure as is airs out. — 3 days ago

Very lovely! 1 hour plus decant. Dark red color. Nose is big with green and metallic elements. Wine is massive with dark cherries, spice, and meaty flavors. It’s the kind of wine you can take a sip and hold in your mouth for minutes. Soaks the palate and is very deep and chewy. Extremely long finish. High quality and will last for many more years. — 2 days ago
This wine fucks. The I popped the bottle and decanted before heading to the gym. When I came home the whole house smelled like BBQ. There was a mystical blue/black fruit mid palette and the finish was a 100% game. Wonderful wine. The tannins were firm but reinforcing the experience not detracting from it. — 16 days ago
Deep reddish tawny. Notes of cherry, herbs, cranberries, red licorice, some white pepper and a little kirsch. Pleasant in the mouth. While not overly rich as you would like to see with La Turque in a great vintage, the fruit is still nicely present with a decent spine of structure and acidity. — 20 days ago
Disappointment of the week. No, month!! This was one of our prized bottles we took back from our northern Rhône venture two years ago. So with great anticipation we opened it tonight. Great bouquet on the nose but didn’t carry through to the wine. Strong vibrant dry fruit up front but no follow through, no depth, no structure and no finish. — 17 days ago
