Fitou 2021

Vieilles Vignes

PLEASE NOTE: while all other wines on the website are avalable for preorder only, it is currently possible to purchase this delicious Fitou for UK delivery now.

Domaine Jones Fitou is made from grapes from up to 15 of my very small vineyards scattered around the villages of Tuchan and Paziols in the Languedoc including my very first Fitou vineyard St Roch. The secret of my Fitou is definitely in the age of the vines – most of them are over 100 years old and bring freshness, depth and a beautiful texture to the wine. Complex, smooth and succulent, with pure hedgerow fruit.

Fitou is not the name of a grape but the name of a small village on the Mediterranean coast between Narbonne and Perpignan. There are 8 other villages that are allowed to produce Fitou, 5 in the low lying coastal area and 4 inland on the higher ground of the Corbières mountains.

€110.00

It’s another winner from this estate that offers a supple, sexy and medium to full-bodied personality to go with great aromas and flavours of blackberry and black cherry fruit, roasted herbs, leather and liquorice. Sweetly fruit, beautifully textured and with terrific purity of fruit.

The Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnock

Intensely savoury palate with a pronounced herbal note that conjures up an afternoon's walk on the Fitou's garrigue strewn hill.

Decanter, Natasha Hughes

Full of plump, deep spice and plentiful dark fruit

Mail on Sunday, Olly Smith
