Chateau Fortia is a symbolic estate in Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the Rhone region of France, both for its location and its roots that are closely linked to that of its appellation. Bruno Leroy de Boiseaumarie, the current proprietor and descendant of a family whose name is closely identified with the fight to establish appellations of origin. In 1929 due to the efforts of Baron Pierre Leroy, Chateauneuf du Pape became the first appellation with a set of winemaking regulations. However, Bruno Leroy does not rest on his laurels. Instead he strives to make people aware of his 30 hectare property and that of the appellation launched by his grandfather. Grapes : 61% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre Region : France / Rhone / Chateauneuf-du-pape Maker : Pierre Pastre Notes : A softer, fruitier wine than the traditional cuvée. Well integrated tannins, juicy fruit and a long and elegant finish. A deeply coloured wine with aromas of raspberry and cherries and hints of liquorice. A rich concentrated palate with well integrated tannins and a long and elegant finish incorporating hints of spice. Serve : At room temperature to accompany strong flavoured meat dishes, game and mature cheese. ABV : 14.5%
