Pizza demands juicy, fresh wine and time and time again, especially on a warm night in August, I find myself reaching for rosé, preferably from the South of France. The last one of the season just hit my cellar, from a world-class producer of Tuesday nighters, Richard Jaume.
His old vines of Grenache and Syrah are precariously rooted in limestone at some of the highest elevations in the Rhône, perfect for making wildly aromatic, bone-dry Rosé that is simply lights out perfect with pizza of any type. I know first hand, the last visit at chez Jaume included a pretty damn good pizza in an ancient stone oven. We drank rosé. You should too.
The 2019 just hit my cellar, it’s a terrific Tuesday nighter, with a killer nose of blood orange, red berries and English garden roses. In the mouth, the fruit is intense, with sappy raspberry, cherry and tangerine flavors, finishing bone dry and lip-smackingly fresh. Get it into your pizza rotation ASAP!
