Wine Of The Week
I know. It's been a while since we featured a wine of the week but we are happy to be back on Wine Wednesdays. Today, from the Château de Jau in Roussillon, France, comes le jaja de jeau saivignon blanc 2009. The jaja range is designed to be fun and youthful without compromising quality.
The word "jaja" is regional slang used to represent the area's delicious, full-flavored, everyday wines. It is often the house selection in local bistros and restaurants. The actual label was designed by Benjamin Vauthier, founder of the "fluxxus" movement of contemporary and graphic art. Storage of 3-4 months in stainless steel vats enhance the true fresh fruit base, so important for the Sauvignon grape variety. Very aromatic, with both flowery and fruity notes, it is crisp, fresh and zesty on the tongue.
