Grenache Gris, Domaine Jones

Languedoc-Rousillon, France

Delicate bouquet of wild spring flowers, almond blossom, melon and a hint of fennel. This wine comes from Katie's vineyard under the imposing Cathar Castle of Queribus in Maury in the Roussillon where Domaine Jones started back in 2009.  It is made exclusively from old vine Grenache Gris – quite a rarity! Delightful paired with a medley of fresh summer dishes, juicy scallops, plump grilled prawns, wild mushroom risotto and roast chicken.
The village of Maury lies just over the border in the Roussillon about 20 minutes from Tuchan where the wine is made. Here Grenache in all its colours, red, white and grey, is king! The black schist soils literally crunch underfoot and hand picking is somewhat challenging on the slopes of loose stone where mountain goats would be more at home!
