JOSEPH JEFFERIES - DOMAINE BORIES JEFFERIES, CAUX, LANGUEDOC
Joe Jefferies is a guy from Warwickshire who went to the South of France to help his Dad do up a house. He met a girl, fell in love and never looked back. Joe worked as a cycle tour guide for a number of years, but after drinking the wines of, and becoming friends with Remi Poujol and Bernard Bellahsen of Domaine Fontedicto he decided to try his hand with the grape, taking over his stepdads Grenache Blanc vines and finding other north-facing vineyards around his home town of Caux. The vineyards all sit on the plateau of an old volcano, with vineyards rich in basalt and in an increasingly warm climate Joe still manages to find freshness in his wines. He only uses native varieties. all of the wines are produced with zero additions, no fining or filtering and he gives the wines the time they need before releasing them.
This collection includes seven of Joe's wines plus a leaflet with information on the wines and him.
