Wine Advocate - Score: 93-96 (43405)

I tasted six different lots from barrel that will be blended to make the 2017 Cote Rotie. Summed up, they should make another fine effort from Jean-Paul Jamet. Gerine was wonderfully fragrant and fine, while le Plomb was dark, inky and tannic, a structural component. Most complete was a blended lot that included fruit from la Landonne, Moutonne and a few other bits. Amazingly floral and refined on the nose and silky and charming on the palate, it will account for about 10% of the blend. As usual here, it's been vinified with 95% whole clusters and aged almost entirely in older oak barrels.

Brilliant purple. Aromas of ripe, dark berries, succulent flowers and smoky bacon are sharpened by intense mineral and peppery spice flourishes. Spicy and energetic on the palate, offering deeply concentrated blackberry, cherry preserve and violet pastille flavors and steadily building olive and violet nuances. Finishes bright, supple and impressively long, showing excellent clarity, well-knit tannins and building florality.
