Home Wine Regions French Wine Le Jaja de Jau Syrah Rosé

Ah, yes.  It’s another French rosé.  It’s still summer, so we need to celebrate good summer wines.

This one is 100% syrah and it’s labeled as a Vin de Pays d’Oc, which means it’s a French “country wine” (i.e. Vin de Pays) from Languedoc (i.e. d’Oc).  Vin de Pays is considered a step up from Vin de Table or “table wine” but a step below AOC labeled wines.  Regardless of its classification, this is a nice wine.

Le Jaja de Jau Syrah Rosé

This rosé shows mostly mineral aromas on the nose, there is also some cherry & raspberry but it’s subtle.  The palate shows some strawberry and raspberry flavors, but it’s not an “in your face” kind of fruit.  It’s subtle… it’s nice.  This is a dry rosé with no sweetness to speak of.  The acidity is sufficient.  It finishes with mineral and a hint of tart berries.
