Along Came Jones Lledoner Pelut Hairy Grenache Vin de France, 2021

France

Producer

Domaine Jones

Grape Variety

Lledoner Pelut

Intense blackcurrant cordial aromas are
complemented with wild herbs. It is supple with a linear structure revealing juicy red fruits and a grainy finish. Just a small amount of this wine is produced each year from Lledoner Pelut – a Grenache mutation. Never one to follow a trend, Katie was intrigued by the local grape variety that had been shunned in recent years. After her first attempt to make a wine with it in 2015, she went a bit quiet, having been disappointed
with the results. The following year, she
tried a different vinification technique
limiting the time the juice is in contact with the grape skins to just four days. Et voilà! It was a success! Katie named it her “Hairy Grenache”, as the underside of the leaves are covered in soft down.
