Mount Tauch Les Quatre Fitou bottleWine Tasting Note: Mount Tauch Les Quatre, 2003, Fitou, France.
Available from Waitrose for £8.99.
Now this is gorgeous - smooth and so easy to drink but substantial, rich with inky/herby depths. With a layer of tannin to contain the fruit this well-structured wine is delicious with a humble steak through to more elaborate meaty fare or even a barbecue. Classy packaging emphasises the quality.

Mount Tauch is a cooperative winery in the depths of the Languedoc. Four (Les Quatre) of the best vineyards around Tuchan have been selected to form this wine. Fifty year old vines have provided the Carignan, Grenache and Syrah for this 'seductive, stylish red'. Alcohol 14%.
Scribblings Rating - 94/100

This brought back memories. I love Fitou and haven't had it in ages. A Catalonia chef had it on his wine list in Auckland made with grapes grown in his Grandmothers vineyard. Sadly the restaurant and chef packed up and left a few years back. At a business dinner in Paris in 2001 our host served a Fitou. Thinking he was serving a wine we would not be able to guess, he was totally bowled over when I said "Fitou". He thought I was terribly clever but really it was my eating a bowl of Franc's fish soup and a glass of fitou weekly for the previous 12 months.
