Style: Earthy & Spicy

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Driven by his passion for the Mediterranean lifestyle, Gerard Bertrand reveals all the unique character of the region's finest wine terroirs. Lying between the mountains of the Corbieres and the lakes and beaches along the Mediterranean coast, Fitou boasts a wide variety of soils and micro-climates endowing the wines with rich aromas. This wine is generous and rounded, with intense red fruit flavors and subtle spicy hints.

Ideals with grilled meats, beef and game.

Critical Acclaim

"This comes off a bit tight and rustic, with astringent notes of black plum and cherry skin, tea leaf, black olive and licorice root. A cigar tobacco accent unfolds on the palate and marries harmoniously with the black-fruit core, while peppery spice lingers through the medium-length finish."
