Editors notes

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Riper on the nose than the Symphonie but with a musky, reduced quality to the aromas of dark plum, raspberry and menthol. The dark fruit flavors suggest a later harvest here but Jean-Luc Burguet nevertheless described the raw material as "just short of full maturity." Flavors of black cherry, dark plum, menthol and minerals are juicy and tight but carry well on the firmly tannic back end. Avoids the slight dry edge shown by the Symphonie. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Critic Scores & reviews

    "The wine was raised in 2014 in about a third new oak and offers up a lovely aromatic constellation of red and black cherries, violets, grilled meat, a complex base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure on the attack and quite soil-driven, with a fine, sappy core, bright acids and a very long, suavely tannic and tangy finish. This is really a superb bottle in the making. (Drink between 2022-2055)"

    "From 18 parcels in vineyards situated in Brochon and the northern sector of Gevrey with a few to the east that average approximately 60 years of age; these include Les Corvées, Reniard, Jouise, Sylvie, Champs Perriers, Carré Rougeaud, Combe de Lavaut, Fourneau, Murots, Billard and Creux Brouillard) Like the Symphonie there is a trace of new wood setting off the more deeply pitched and slightly riper aromas of red and dark currant, earth and humus scents. There is also more volume to the sappy and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that display only mild rusticity on the serious and built-to-age finale. Moderate patience will be required. Recommended. Drink 2022+ *Outstanding Top Value*"

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Burgundy

Burgundy is undoubtedly the home of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnays in the world, where vineyards, or Domaines have been producing wines for over 2000 years. Burgundy is located in the North-east of France, an hours drive from Lyon and 2 hours from Paris. With over 100 appellations, or sub-regions (more than any other wine region) Burgundy is known for being the most terroir-oriented region in the World. The finest red wines of Burgundy are found in the Côte d'Or, a string of villages including Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey St Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-St Georges.

There are flavours present in great Burgundys that are the envy of Pinot Noir producers worldwide. The elusive peacocks tail finish that goes on and on, and the pretty-elegance backed by Burgundy muscle is the goal of winemakers around the globe. The main levels in the Burgundy classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations. For the Chablis wines, a similar hierarchy of Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Village wines is used, plus Petit Chablis as a level below Village Chablis.

Gevrey-Chambertin

Gevrey-Chambertin is an important village Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) in the Côte de Nuits subregion of Burgundy, France, exclusively for red wines (Pinot Noir). It is also the largest village in the Côte de Nuits and boasts some of Burgundy’s most acclaimed Grands Crus and Premiers Crus. The Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir wines are bright-ruby-coloured in youth, gaining deeper hues with age. On the nose, expect berry fruits (strawberries, mulberries) and floral notes. With age, aromas of licorice, game, underbrush, leather, and fur develop. On the powerful palate, you’ll find well-balanced structure, velvety tannins, and ‘meaty’ texture. Generally, these wines have a reputation for being fuller-bodied and richer than some of their Burgundy counterparts. They have excellent potential for ageing.

About the brand Jean Luc Jamet

Jean-Luc Jamet is one of the most iconic producers of Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône. His journey began in 1991, working alongside his brother Jean-Paul at the famed family estate “Domaine Jamet”. The magnificent Domaine occupied some of the the best parts of Côte-Rôtie and Côte du Rhône – but in 2013, the brothers parted ways and split the 16 hectare estate into equal halves.

ith a brand-new winery (literally separated by one wall to his brother’s) and the same marvellous vineyards at hand, Jean-Luc – the ‘phoenix’ of Côte Rôtie – started a new adventure. He now applies his craft in making wines of extreme delicacy to his own exacting taste and standards.

Jean-Luc has always sought to plant and grow vineyards in the best parts of Côte-Rôtie, both on Côte Blonde and – more commonly – on Côte Brune. His preferred and famous areas such as “Lancement”, “Chavaroche”, “La Landonne”, “Les Moutonnes”, “Les Rochins” are recognized as complex, Syrah suitable land composed of schist and granite.
