Description

Jancis Robinson, August 2017

“Hand harvested. Very low sulphur additions. No malolactic conversion. Only just gris-salmon pink; Moroccan colour! This vintage smells in some slight way more of winery than vineyard but it’s a very racy, refreshing wine that’s absolutely bone dry and is well balanced with some schist element insisting on the finish. An agreeable saltiness about this. Very firm, assertive, extremely long finish with a suggestion of quinine. A much finer rosé than most with the schist playing a most intriguing part.” Score 16.5/20

Jancis Robinson on Jauzimen 2015:

“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!” Score 16.5/20

 

In Occitan poetry Jauzimen evokes a joy realised, happiness, enjoyment marked by a delicate sensuality or a vivid pleasure.
