DOMAINE JONES Fitou
Complex, smooth and succulent, with pure hedgerow fruit. Domaine Jones Fitou is made from grapes from 15 of my very small vineyards scattered around the villages of Tuchan and Paziols in the Languedoc. The secret of my Fitou is definitely in the age of the vines – most of them are over 100 years old and bring freshness, depth and a beautiful texture to the wine.FULL NOTES

Jancis Robinson, Purple Pages
"Full of plump, deep spice and plentiful dark fruit"
Mail on Sunday, Olly Smith
"Intensely savoury palate with a pronounced herbal note that conjures up an afternoon's walk on the Fitou's garrigue strewn hill."
Decanter, Natasha Hughes
"It’s another winner from this estate that offers a supple, sexy and medium to full-bodied personality to go with great aromas and flavours of blackberry and black cherry fruit, roasted herbs, leather and liquorice. Sweetly fruit, beautifully textured and with terrific purity of fruit."
The Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnock
