92-94 "Still not in bottle, the 2013 Cote Rotie wasmore tight and reserved on this occasion than during my tastings last year. Nevertheless, it still offers terrific depth and concentration, as well a plenty of tannic grip. Offering classic notes of violets, blackberries, raspberries, cured meats and pepper, it has a certain austerity and will be one to hide in the cellar for a good 6-7 years." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

93-94 Points "Tasted in components: #1, mostly Gerine, all destemmed: Zesty red fruit and floral aromas and flavors, with a mineral element providing spine and lift. Supple and seamless, with strong finishing cling. #2, mostly Gerine again but made with whole clusters: Spicy and precise, with bitter cherry and violet character and a deeper suggestion of licorice emerging with air. #3, a blend of Fontgeant, Leyat, Moutonne and Côte-Baudin: High-pitched red and dark berry scents, with complicating hints of incense, anise and smoky bacon. Very complex in the mouth, with sweet blackberry and cherry flavors picking up a minerally nuance on the finish, with the smoky note repeating. #4, from Le Plomb and Tartaras: Smoky and expansive on the nose and palate, offering black and blue fruit elements and a strong note of spicecake. Concentrated but lithe, finishing with strong thrust and sneaky tannins. #5, from Lancement, Côte-Rozier and Côte-Blonde: Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of fresh dark fruits, pipe tobacco, Asian spices and incense, with a bright mineral flourish. Sappy, penetrating and pure, communicating excellent power to its sappy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Harmonious and fruit-driven, with outstanding closing thrust. The final blend looks extremely promising, and the wine should show well within a few years of release. Having pretty extensive experience with Jamet's wines I can vouch for their ability to age, even those from "lesser" vintages." - Josh Reynolds.

17.5 Points "Denser than the 2014 samples on the nose. Some sweetness and very round. Perhaps less obviously aromatic than the young 2014s with a hint of oak and quite a bit of tannin on the end. I’d wait quite a while before drinking this." - Jancis Robinson
