2016 Fitou “Dennis Royal”

Domaine Les Mille Vignes

The name is an homage to a close American friend of the Guérin family who passed away recently: Dennis Royal Clark. He first met Jacques Guérin when he was looking into buying a domaine in France and Jacques helped him with advice as to what was worth his investment or not. DR Clark never ended up buying a domaine as whatever he and Jacques visited didn’t live up to Jacques’ standards when it came to the quality and state of the vineyards, so instead, DR Clark bought a house in the village of La Palme, where Mille Vignes is located. He and his wife then participated in each harvest at Mille Vignes until Dennis’ passing. When it was time to find a name for this new Carignan-dominated cuvée Valérie felt it was only appropriate to honor the US, and an American friend, after having honored Japan with the Atsuko. People have jokingly started calling this “the DRC from Mille Vignes,” even though Valérie chose to omit the “Clark” in the cuvée name.

About Languedoc-Roussillon

map of 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.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
