Fitou wine

Fitou AOC wine: the oldest controlled designation of origin in Languedoc

Less known than the famous vineyards of the south of France which are the AOC Pic Saint Loup wines and the AOC wines Corbières, the wine of Fitou is nevertheless the oldest AOC appellation in Languedoc-Roussillon.

Neighboring the Corbières massif while being closer to the Mediterranean Sea, the Fitou vineyard is subject to the typical wind of the region, the Tramontane.

This cold, dry and powerful wind helps to “cleanse” the sky of these clouds, and thus provides the vines with ideal sunshine.

As part of the Heritage range of iconic wines from the Occitanie region, the An 990 Fitou cuvée is carefully produced to reveal all the characteristics of its terroir.

Year 990 Fitou refers to the date of the first written record of Fitou's domain.

Production method of Fitou An 990

Cuvée An 990 Fitou is a red wine blended from two black grape varieties, Grenache and Carignan, two sure values ​​of the wines of Mediterranean basin.

We thus find in this sunny wine the power of Grenache and the generosity of Carignan.

After picking exclusively by hand, the two grape varieties are vinified separately in order to obtain the maximum potential of each.

Part of the wine is also aged in barrels for 12 months, before bottling.
