2011 Chateau De Jau


Product was provided for free however the review is my honest opinion.

The 2011 Chateau De Jau the second bottle of three that I received from the Wine Chateau.  So far I am very pleased with both bottles and look forward to trying the final bottle.


Medium color depth with a ruby hue.

Slightly aromatic, middle-aged with aromas of spice, dark fruit and some minerality.

Dry, medium-bodied with lively acids.  Slightly astringent tannins.  Soft mid-palate flavors with a lingering finish.

abv: 13.0%

How much: $13.97.  A real bargain for this wine.

Appellation/Region: France, Cotes Du Roussillon Villages

Wine composition: 45% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, 15% Carignan, 10% Grenache.

Chris and I paired the 2011 Chateau De Jau with chicken fajita’s.  For most people I would serve the red wine with food.  For me I liked it without food.

I rated the 2011 Chateau De Jau four glasses.  A decent bottle of wine from France at this price can’t be beat.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine.  Expand your palate and keep trying.
