  1. 1999 Domaine Jamet (Côte-Rôtie)

    1. Attention grabbing scents of jammy blackberry, violet, garrigue, wet earth and bacon fat are present. On the palate, the wine is big, concentrated, tannic, animalistic and brawny. The wine finishes with dense, fresh cherry girotte. After 2 hours in the glass, the wine softened and morphed from sweet and sour, sauvage to more of a delicate, array of cherries. Still young, this will improve over the next few years.

    2. Cherry blossoms, honeydew, kirsch, spice, cloves, bacon fat, earth, beef blood and stone make up the complex perfume. Bright, fresh, sappy, red fruit with supple textures ends with a refreshing black cherry filled finish. This powerful, masculine wine has continued evolving and improving since it first arrived in bottle. At 12, this Cote Rotie is ready to enjoy tonight and over the next 10-15 years.

    3. Kirsch, pepper dried fruits, bacon fat, earth, licorice and cherries make up the perfume. Full bodied, powerful and structured, with freshness along with dusty tannins, the wine finishes with a smoky cherry sensation. This needs another 2-3 years before it reaches full maturity.

    4. A perfume redolent of juicy ripe fruit dripping in bacon fat, a sexy, meaty mouthfeel and long finish combined to make a great wine.

    5. Perfume consisting of rich, deep black and red fruits soaked in bacon fat soars from the glass. Very meaty and beefy. This wine drank well without much airtime.

    6. Incredibly concentrated with intense levels of very ripe, sweet, dark fruit. Meaty, beefy, big and bouncy this has a lot going on. Multiple layers of black fruit flood your palate.
