Fitou (Occitan: Fiton) is a large French wine appellation in Languedoc-Roussillon, France. The dominant vine variety is Carignan which has to constitute 40% of any blend. Grenache, Lladoner Pelut (the 'hairy' Grenache), Mourvèdre and Syrah are also often blended with it. These wines are made for drinking young[citation needed], and tend to be tannic with fresh forest fruit flavours[citation needed]. Muscat de Rivesaltes AOC, a vin doux naturel, also comes from the region.
