Domaine Jamet, Condrieu Vernillon 750ml 2016France, Rhône
‘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.’ – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
'(raised in a 50/50 combination of stainless steel tanks and used 300-liter oak barrels) Green-hued straw-yellow. Penetrating citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of chalky minerals and violet. Juicy and concentrated but lively in style, offering vibrant pear and Meyer lemon flavors that show strong mineral drive and sharp focus. The mineral note carries emphatically through the incisive finish, which lingers with strong persistence.' – Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com, 93/100
'In only its second vintage, the 2016 Condrieu Vernillon has seemingly hit its stride. Aged half in barrels and half in stainless steel, it's not that floral but instead is richly textured, loaded with ripe apricot flavors. It has a plump, succulent feel to it, then finishes with lingering hints of spice and honey. Delicious now, it should drink well for a few years.' – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 92/100
