Established in 1976 by Joseph Jamet and his wife, Simone, Domaine Jamet has been a family-owned and operated winery for several generations. Joseph's sons, Jean-Paul and Jean-Luc, have continued the winemaking tradition, ensuring the Domaine's reputation for crafting outstanding Côte-Rôtie wines.
The vineyards are situated on steep slopes, where the terroir consists of schist, granite, and limestone soils. These diverse soil types contribute to the complexity and nuances found in the wines. The Domaine owns and manages several prime vineyard sites within the Côte-Rôtie appellation, including such renowned areas as La Landonne, Côte Brune, and Côte Blonde.
Domaine Jamet practices sustainable viticulture in the vineyards, emphasising careful vineyard management and working in harmony with nature. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo rigorous selection to ensure that only the finest fruit reaches the cellar.
In the cellar, the winemaking process is characterised by traditional practices and a non-interventionist approach. The grapes are fermented using indigenous yeasts, allowing for a natural fermentation process that preserves the unique characteristics of the vineyards. The wines are then aged in a combination of oak barrels and large casks to allow for a subtle integration of oak flavours while respecting the purity of the fruit.
