DOMAINE JONES Carignan Gris
Fresh, crunchy pear and extremely lively with a herby, smoky edge. Carignan Gris is a very rare grape and unlike the red variety is very difficult to come by. I was extremely lucky to be able to purchase a small vineyard just outside Tuchan and fascinated to see what style of wine it produced we kept the wine separate and made just 800 bottles. We rather like it!FULL NOTES
Current vintage: 2016
"Rare, characterful Carignan Gris whose smoky fragrance and sumptuously fresh pear fruit is delicately infused with notes of garrigue herb and smokiness."
The Wine Gang
"It's a delicious, characterful dry white with a marked herby edge."
