Delicious, intense Southern French red packed with dark fruits and spice.

Red
Vintage: 2012

Fitou is a small wine appellation within the wider Languedoc region. It is made up of a patchwork of small vineyards, in a rugged and wild area of the South of France. The wines are also pretty rugged and wild, deep red in colour and painting a patchwork of ripe fruits, wild herbs and spice. It varies a bit from good value, easy-going, rustically charming reds to this, creme de la creme version. Every aspect of it is turned up to its most intense creating an explosion of flavours which just keep coming. Not only is it a superb wine, it comes with a great story, Katie Jones moved to the tiny village of Tuchan, deep in Fitou country, and worked with the local winemakers for more than 10 years (non specific times to protect Katie’s modesty) and 6 years ago went out alone to make her own version of the local tipple. Domaine Jones respects the local traditions and gives it a dollop of the Jones personality.
