Go beyond the legend! No, Fitou is not THE wine for game that we do not (unfortunately…) eat anymore. It is power in a velvet glove, with fine minerality from the shale at altitude and of the fullness of the fruit.
35% Carignan / 37% Syrah / 28% Grenache
France / Languedoc
Discreet, with creamy and milky notes of black fruits and also of sweet spices.
Round, ample, with a mature, juicy and velvety matter. On the whole it is tense, fresh and well balanced, and dominated by black cherry and cocoa flavours.
A fine chewy finish, always on the same aromatic tastes, noble and bitter, has an unexpected acidity that prolongs the wine with a lot of peps.
Mixed grills, red and white meats...
Serve at 16°C
