Côte-Rôtie 'Terrasses' - Jean-Luc Jamet - 2015
Rhône / France
Organic / Biodynamic
Hand harvested from 40yr old vines
65% destemmed, with a 21 day vinification using wild yeasts, employing twice daily pump overs and 1 cap punching
Wines were aged in 20-30% new, 70-80% 1-6 year 60% 300-litre, 20% 228-litre, 20% 500-litre oak casks for 10 months
Bold and full and burstign with dark cassis fruit and smokey spice. Chalky but ripe tannins at the core, whilst the body being vibrant yet still fleshy, this has great lift and pure blueberry and black pepper.
