2015 Fitou “Chasse-Filou”

Domaine Les Mille Vignes

2015 Fitou “Chasse-Filou” Domaine Les Mille Vignes - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Very old vines, an unbelievably rocky terroir, and extreme precision in farming and winemaking make Mille Vignes the source of some delightfully finessed, highly drinkable reds from the Languedoc’s Fitou appellation. Winemaker Valérie Guérin prefers to let the vines and the vineyard site do the talking, so she eschews oak in the cellar and instead carries out all vinifications and aging in tiny fiberglass tanks. Her wines express a shocking purity of fruit: this Grenache is a tender cushion of soft wild cherries and brambly berries, accented by a hint of resinous garrigue herbs. It is intended for current consumption—no need to wait!

About Languedoc-Roussillon

Ask wine drinkers around the world, and the word “Languedoc” is sure to elicit mixed reactions. On the one hand, the region is still strongly tied to its past as a producer of cheap, insipid bulk wine in the eyes of many consumers. On the other hand, it is the source of countless great values providing affordable everyday pleasure, with an increasing number of higher-end wines capable of rivaling the best from other parts of France.

While there’s no denying the Languedoc’s checkered history, the last two decades have seen a noticeable shift to fine wine, with an emphasis on terroir. Ambitious growers have sought out vineyard sites with poor, well draining soils in hilly zones, curbed back on irrigation and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and looked to balance traditional production methods with technological advancements to craft wines with elegance, balance, and a clear sense of place. Today, the overall quality and variety of wines being made in the Languedoc is as high as ever.

Shaped like a crescent hugging the Mediterranean coast, the region boasts an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates depending on elevation, exposition, and relative distance from the coastline and the cooler foothills farther inland. While the warm Mediterranean climate is conducive to the production of reds, there are world-class whites and rosés to be found as well, along with stunning dessert wines revered by connoisseurs for centuries.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
