Description
We've known Katie Jones for over 20 years, and have followed her lovely Domaine in Fitou since she bought the first vines. So when her husband Jean-Marc started making his own organic wines, we were first in the queue.
Tasting Notes
Majoring on Carignan, but with a good slug of Syrah, this is a deep-coloured, herb-laden red, redolent of the French countryside - rosemary, thyme and fruit compote.
This is crying out for a haunch of wild boar, but a leg of lamb will do just as well - or grilled Toulouse sausages!
