The vines of Fitou mark the western reaches of the Languedoc; beyond these borders lay the lands of Roussillon. Here both the lands and the complex blends resemble those found in Corbières, though the wines tend to have more power and perhaps less elegance than your typical Corbières, which is not exactly surprising with most wines based on Carignan and Grenache. Bertrand Berge, Maria Fita and the Château des Erles all produce fine wines that are good values.
