Fitou Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Jones – Final Year of Conversion to Organic

£14.99

Domaine Jones is made up of over 15 small vineyards scattered around the village of Tuchan. All have a similar profile: old vines (the Carignan is the oldest at around 100 years) planted high up with amazing views, but the soils vary from schist to limestone and clay.

Due to the different ripening times, the three grapes in this big, full-bodied Fitou are picked and vinified separately. Fermentation is in small stainless steel vats, then 40% of the wine is transferred to newish 228L French oak barrels. The wine is matured in oak for 10 months before blending and bottling.
Despite its weight this is a very pure Fitou with a fresh, lively palate thanks to the age of the vines. There are red fruit, rosemary and thyme characters with warming liquorice and vanilla notes, and soft smooth tannins. Goes very well with Cassoulet, sausages (meat or veggie) or a wide range of cheeses.
