Cote Rotie 2006 Domaine Jamet
Jean-Paul told me that 2006 was ?a complex vintage to get even ripeness? and went on to say he ?waited and waited to get ripe tannins.? He produced an outstanding wine and his 2006 C?te Rotie is more elegant than the '09 and offers up pretty aromas and flavors of spice, smoked meats, pepper, currants and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity and fine tannin, it doesn't have the depth of top vintage, but is charming, silky and drinking beautifully.

Really solid, with a still-compact core of braised fig, mulled black currant, grilled chestnut and roasted olive notes, held in check by charred wood and truffle hints. There's burly grip, but it's integrated on the long, dark finish, which is spiked with an iron note.?
