The Fitou appellation is split into 3 Zones. This comes from one of the inland zones around the village of Tuchan. This is rugged country with a dry and windy microclimate. The landscape may be barren, but the grapes here are often full of concentration and complexity, in particular the Carignan. That grape makes up 40% of the blend here with Syrah and Grenache sharing the rest. This is great quality, earthy Languedoc wine at its best. Superb value.
