Pepped with Syrah spice, Grenache charm and rich Mourvèdre, this authentic, southern French red comes from coastal Fitou. Cooled by Mediterranean sea breezes this fine, silky, organic wine has a freshness to balance its punchy blackberry richness.
Fitou is one of the top appellations of the Languedoc, with red wines that are hugely appealing with their rich, ripe fruit and authentic taste of the herbal garrigue. Our buyer, Mark Hoddy, lives close by, always on hand to check out any great discoveries. This is one from the Dellova family and their 40-hectare estate, which they've owned since 1971. They proudly began organic conversion in 2009, gaining full status in 2012. Brothers Thierry and André are today in charge, nurturing the vines in the dry, ocean-breeze-swept terroir of La Palme. This fabulous, silky, intensely flavoured 2019 is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, heaped with heady black fruits and spice. Perfect for baked aubergine and tomato or grilled meats.
"Fitou at its finest, from organic coastal vineyards and a family domaine"
