2010 Fitou "Cadette" Les Mille Vignes
Fitou produces exclusively red wine and in 1948, became the first Languedoc AOC. The terroir is an amalgam of strong natural elements: clay, limestone, and schist soils; wild scrubland scented with thyme and lavender, and perhaps the most potent force of all, Tramontagne, a wind that sometimes seems it will never stop blowing. This domaine was a pioneer of the appellation; founded in 1970 by Jacques Guerrin and now in the hands of his daughter Valerie. all their wines are hand harvested, fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in tank and bottle at least for 18 months.
