More to Mont Tauch than just Fitou?

04 February, 2011

Fitou co-operative Mont Tauch has launched Les Garrigues Grande Reserve Grenache Noir 2010 in Sainsbury’s.

The 100% Grenache Noir wine is being promoted at £6.74 for six weeks from February 9 – 25% off its normal £8.99 rrp.

The wine is sourced mainly from old vines, some of which are over 100 years old, and has the intense spicy and herbal notes of the Garrigues vegetation found in the hills between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

UK sales director Antoine Leray said: “This new Grenache Noir is a great example of Mont Tauch’s authentic southern French varietal wine and shows that Month Tauch is more than just Fitou. It is also one of the first wines to be released that has been made by our new head winemaker, Jean-Philippe Trollet.”?The wine is destalked and vinified at a stable temperature in stainless steel vats with daily racking for six days. Mont Tauch said the resulting wine is “dense and well-balanced with hints of blackcurrant, damsons and spice”.
