Fitou ‘Les Megalithes', Domaine Bertrand Bergé 2019

Red Wine from France - Languedoc - Roussillon
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Splendid, full-bodied southern French red made from old-vine carignan. Ripe, concentrated and heady, yet carignan never loses its freshness for all its intensity and heat. This needs a big stew or grilled meats to show it off.
Price: £13.95 Bottle

Domaine Bertrand-Bergé

Jérôme and Sabine Bertrand having been making wine near the tiny village of Paziol since 1993 but six generations of Jérôme’s family have preceded them, right back to his great-grandfather Jean Sirven, who won plaudits for his wines at the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris. They continued to make wine until the 1960s when the decision was taken to supply grapes to the local co-operative.

1993 was the year when Jérôme and Sabine took winemaking back into their own hands. The decision has proved to be farsighted and they have earned a reputation as one of the best domains in Fitou.

They now oversee 33 hectares of organically farmed vines, planted with grenache, syrah and carignan with an average age of 60 years. The wines are matured in concrete rather than new oak for the simple reason that Jérome and Sabine have no room for barrels, though they have their eyes on converting an old stable for the purpose.
