Fitou Jean de Píla 2014
Wedged between the sea, the Pyrenees and Catalonia, Fitou is a fiercely proud region that creates wonderful and too-often-forgotten-about reds, as Domaine de Roudène’s Jean de Píla proves.
Highly concentrated Carignan, Grenache and Syrah grapes are handpicked from old vines – some of which are over 100 years old – and then undergo a long maceration and fermentation to extract all those delicious flavours and complex aromatics. Packed with red and black berries, it feels like they’ve been cooked down slightly with a few peppercorns, cloves, bay leaves and a pinch of orange zest thrown in. Wonderfully warming and charmingly rustic.
Pull the cork on this versatile little number with chargrilled meats, sausages from the barbeque, roast lamb, bean or rabbit stews, couscous with lots of harissa, meatballs or anything with a cheesy sauce.
