Since the 17th century, Château Fortia has passed down its traditions and know-how to make renowned wines within one of the world’s most famous appellations. The estate’s team works meticulously and respectfully all year round, from the vines to the cellars, to ensure the finest expression of our terroir. Our wines are exclusively made from grapes grown in our vineyard. The 32 hectares of vines surround the estate located at the heart of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

Intense ruby red color with purple reflections. The very first nose is very mineral: ink, schist. Then with aeration, all the dark fruitiness develops: ripe blackcurrant, cherry jam, bay leaf and Espelette pepper. The palate is remarkably balanced, with great density but elegant. The sweetness softens the tannic sensations, the mineral tension tightens the wine to infuse it with beautiful energy. The tannins are voluminous but very silky. Very persistent. Notes of black fruits, olive, graphite and zan at the end.
