Jean Luc Jamet Valine Syrah 2020 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes

SKU: 30757 Categories: ,


Having worked with his brother at the exemplary Domaine Jamet, Jean-Luc went rogue a decade ago. He has significant holdings in Cote Rotie and makes some of the very best reds on the hillside. His farm is 2 kilometres west and these vines are cut into the hills of similar, schist soils. These face east (not west as at Cote Rotie) and are suited to a more vibrant style of Syrah. This is emphasised by a burgundian approach to wine making with some whole bunch ferment, new barrels and natural yeasts. The result is a concentrated and deeply coloured Syrah that stays frisky, fresh and long lived in the palate. There aren’t many reds like this! The frank and fresh flavours are best suited to a simple red meat dish, charcuterie and hard but mature cheeses.

Jean-Luc works with his wife Evelyne and son Benoit They are firm favourites of James and everyone here at Handford.

Winemaking Approach




Producer Information: Jean Luc Jamet

Jean Luc was the viticulturist for Domaine Jamet. In 2013 he left the domaine to his brother Jean-Paul, took some vineyards and set up his new winery. The proceeding years have shown that they are both talented winemakers.

Jean-Luc's textural wines tend to be earlier picked, lighter in alcohol and bring a touch of crunchy acidity.

Their Valine Syrah is starting to get quite a following with Handford customers.
