Deep lurid ruby. Ripe cherry, black raspberry and violet on the perfumed nose. Round and fleshy in the mouth, offering juicy dark fruit, smoked meat and cracked pepper flavors that pick up a sweetening hint of cola on the back half. Finishes smooth and long, showing good energy and fine-grained tannins that come in late. (JR)
Leading off the reds and bottled in the beginning of August, the 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah could be thought of as a baby Côte Rôtie with its pretty red fruits (some black), peppery herbs, and bacon fat aromas and flavors. It’s soft, elegant, and balanced, and would be an awesome bistro wine.
Hints of geranium on the nose accent black olives and cassis in the sturdy, medium to full-bodied 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah. Juicy, fresh and pleasurable, I'd drink it young for the ebullient dark fruit, despite the tannins. Aficionados of Côte Rôtie no doubt know that the brothers Jamet split the domaine in 2013, with Jean-Luc subsequently building his own winery just on the other side of the (formerly) shared driveway. That drive is now divided by a sturdy stone wall. This was my first opportunity to visit with Jean-Luc, who spent most of his time in the vineyards when the brothers worked together, so we tasted almost all of the wines he's made since the split. He says he's working on a fresh, fruit-driven style, but that "freshness has been hard to obtain" in recent vintages. "I prefer to make a blended wine with lots of complexity," he said during my visit. There is just one Côte Rôtie as a result, which includes lots from several notable lieux-dits, including La Landonne, Lancement, Fongeant and Chavaroche. During our tasting, we were joined by Benoit Jamet, Jean-Luc's son.
