Traditional Châteauneuf du Pape with a full flavour of berried Grenache fruit and spice.

Producer Note

Château Fortia is a symbolic estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, both for its location and its roots that are closely linked to that of its appellation. In 1929 due to the efforts of Baron Pierre Leroy, Châteauneuf du Pape became the first appellation with a set of winemaking regulations. Today his descendants still continue the proud family tradition.

Vintage

2015 was characterised by a mild winter and a warm spring with normal rainfall. A hot and dry summer followed, with several heat spikes which exceeded 37°C. The mid-September storm alleviated hydric stress in the vines and allowed the grapes to reach perfect maturity. The favourable weather conditions resulted in very healthy grapes at harvest.

Vineyard

Recent Improvements in the vineyard have included the replanting of vines in the correct plots of land to suit the grape variety. The distinct terroir here consists of rounded quartzite stones from the Villafranchian period. These stones absorb heat during the day then radiate it at night, ensuring full grape maturity is reached.

Winemaking

After rigorous sorting, the grapes were destalked. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks with a long maceration lasting approximately five weeks. Malolactic fermentation took place in large oak barrels. After racking, the wine was aged for 18 months in French oak casks, followed by further bottle ageing.

Tasting Note

Complex notes of spice and graphite are underpinned by red fruit preserve. A very textured and silky wine with lovely, full concentration, the tight tannic thread gives it beautiful volume and remarkable length.

Serving Suggestion

At room temperature to accompany strong flavoured meat dishes, game and mature cheese.
