Chateau Fortia Reserve Chateauneuf du Pape 2007

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Powerful and complex with a lovely texture and a great example of Chateauneuf du Pape terroir.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 is the 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: 80% Syrah and 20% MourvedreRegion: France / Rhone / Chateauneuf du Pape AOCMaker: Pierre PastreNotes: Powerful and complex with a lovely texture and a great example of Chateauneuf du Pape terroir. Full flavoured and long lasting.Serve: At 16-18c to accompany strong flavoured meat dishes, game and mature cheese.ABV: 14.5%Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
