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.

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 a rigorous sorting, the grapes were destalked and fermentation took place in a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and concrete tanks. Vinification lasted for approximately five weeks. After racking, the wine was aged in old French oak for 18 months, imparting subtle oak characteristics.

Tasting Note

A distinguished wine showing aromas of fresh red fruits enhanced by smoky notes, sweet liquorice and a delicate hint of rosemary. Full and rich on the palate with well integrated tannins, this is a wine of elegance and finesse.

Serving Suggestion
