Le Jaja de Jau Syrah Rosé

french wine  %tages Le Jaja de Jau Syrah RoséAh, yes.  It’s another French rosé.  It’s subdue summer, so we need to celebrate excellent 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.

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.
