Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of Marsanne (50%), Viognier (25%), Roussanne (12.5%) and Grenache Blanc (12.5%), the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Blanc was aged in a combination of barrels and tank. It's medium-bodied and refreshing, bursting with bright notes of lime and orange before coming to a long, briny-zesty finish. Drink it over the next few years. Aside from Guigal, I know of no other producer with such extensive experience with so many of Côte Rôtie's various lieux-dits. Tasting at Jamet hilltop cellar is always a study in geology and microclimate more than anything else, as the winemaking is resolutely traditional. All of the Côte Rôtie parcels are vinified as whole bunches, and there's still only a small proportion of new wood in the cellars, so it's possible to really taste nuances in the various barrels. Jean-Paul Jamet is always gracious with his time and wine, making it a true pleasure to visit. (JC)  (12/2017)
