The Oddbins Take

There are few greater symbols of rural France than a Citroen 2CV; fuel-efficient, affordable and with such great suspension it is said you could drive across a field with a palate of eggs in the passenger seat without breaking a single one! Thanks Top Gear, we knew that fact would come in handy.

Similar to 2CVs, wines from Fitou would have also been central to rural French life. An AOP founded in 1948, the same year the 2CV hit the market, the wines of Fitou were once so rustic and unassuming that farmers would drink them everyday with their lunch. However, just as Citroen now make supercars, Fitou wines have become exceptionally high-quality and decidedly sought after over the last 10 years. La Tire is smooth with bright flavours of blueberries, blackberries and pepper with an appealing rustic quality on the finish. A modern French wine, that acknowledges its rural roots.
