Jancis Robinson on Jauzimen Rosé 2015

Dom La Lauzeta, Jauzimen Rosé 2015 St-Chinian 16.5

Only just pink – this is so pale I had to examine in carefully in several different lights to
establish that it is not a deep-coloured white. First-ever wine made by
Englishman Tom Hills. Claude Gros consults and wines are made by the
well-travelled Amélie Czerwenka of the northern Rhône. 45% Cinsault, 40% Grenache,
15% Syrah on schist in the far north of the appellation. In certified organic
conversion. Their biggest production at 9,500 bottles. Free sulphur just 13
mg/l!

Pure as a mountain stream. Lovely smooth fruit and a certain light smokiness
(hints of Provence) but with the muscular tang of St-Chinian schist. Admirably
long. Quite a find!
