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

The 2014 vintage started with a mild, rainy winter, which built water reserves in the soil, followed by a warm and dry spring. The warm start to the summer, gave way to intermittent rain, fresh nights and a period of lower than average temperatures, resulting in a late harvest. Rain occurred at the end of harvest, requiring careful sorting which reduced yields. The fruit retained delivered good varietal characteristics and high quality.

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

The grapes were immediately pressed to retain freshness. The juice was then cold settled, prior to the fermentation which took place in temperature controlled tanks, preserving the purity of fruit and aromatics. After racking the wine was aged on its lees in small tanks with regular stirrings for four months. The wine was then bottled during the spring following the harvest.

Tasting Note

A seductive wine with aromas of dried fruits, white floral notes and a touch of white honey. Rich and textured with ripe fruits and a slightly salty tang on the unctuous finish.
