PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Fitou is a relatively small AOC that consists of two finger-like extensions into the larger and more well-known appellation of Corbières. One is very close to the Mediterranean Sea, while is other is located inland and has a much higher elevation. As a whole, Fitou has similar characteristics of terroir to Corbières - mountain and ocean influences, abundant sunshine, and well-drained soils - and is also planted to varietals found in the southern Rhône: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.

Today’s offer is an estate wine crafted by Mont Tauch, a cooperative with 1500 hectares of vineyards located in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon that has been making wines from Corbières and Fitou as well as Vin de Pays for over 100 years. Château de Montmal is a new and sustainably produced Fitou from the village of Villeneuve-les-Corbières which, together with Paziols and Tuchan is one of the three villages to produce Fitou at Mont Tauch.*

Aged in new French oak for 12 months in order to add weight and depth, the 2018 Château de Montmal Fitou is a blend of 40% grenache, 40% carignan, and 20% syrah that is complex and satisfying. It has an inviting nose of blackberries, cassis, and savory herbs that lead to a palate with the same fruits taking center stage. Layers of vanilla, mocha, tobacco, and savory herbs unfold in layers, and a whiff of black pepper emerges on the long finish. 

91 points, James Suckling:
“Very pleasant red with blueberry, plum and black-tea character. Medium body, medium round tannins and a fruity finish. Shows some reserve. Carignan, grenache and syrah.” (9/22/20)
