Back on the diet.
The 2011 Jamet CR is one of the most consistent wines I’ve ever had. Over the course of about a dozen bottles, it was remained the same - pure, aromatic, drinkable and fresh. This was the first bottle I’ve had in a few months. It still has many of the qualities of earlier bottles, but there’s an intimation of maturity in the more complex aromatics and more supple tannins.

Wow, what a nose. Green bell pepper, black pepper, green olives, salami, and some floral notes. Pours almost black in my glass, a dark dark purplish/ruby color. Incredibly savory on the palate and with great poise - just a little oak, and not much fruit. The kind of wine that feels both rustic and aristocratic, like it should be drank from a golden chalice dotted with precious stones. Some pencil lead and iron-like blood notes join the party as it opens, but the mouthfeel remains sensuous with everything in its right place. With still more time in the glass, surprisingly giving notes of boysenberry jam begin to integrate with the rest of the savory flavors, but without overwhelming them. A masterpiece.

Lots of black red fruits, exotic spices, bacon fat and smoked meat. Just a beautiful Côte Rotie!

What a beauty at this youthful stage! The nose is already complex with blackberry, black cherry, coffee grounds, and an herbaceous scent with minimal spice. The palate is fresh and vivacious with an acidity that just enthralls. It is medium to full bodied, and remains on track all the way through its wonderful finish. Though hard to resist now, you would be wise to cellar this and see how it evolves over the next five years. Top-notch Rhone Syrah!

I love jamet. loads of it in my cellar. I do not love this bottle, however. no white pepper or lead or iron. a weird bell pepper blueberry jam streak. opposite ripeness flavors? has promise but needs time. this was in a 375mls. had the same wine in 750mls a few months ago and was great. root day....? anyone else had the 11?
