Wine maker notes
Harvested by night to keep the freshness, each vineyard lot is gently pressed & fermented separately at low temperature for more finesse & purity. Some selected lots are fermented and aged in French oak barrels to bring richness & complexity. After 6 months of sur lies aging with battonage (for the creamy flavor), each component is blended to create the Fortant signature..
Today, our estate extends nearly 56 hectares from which 80% is from the noble and very old grape variety, called Sauvignon, and as for the rest, from the most delicate and elegant of red grape varieties, called Pinot Noir.
We carry out a traditional cultivation, which combines the most ancestral methods passing by others from the biological or biodynamical culture and the most modern in terms of equipment.
The key word of the property being the respect for the terroir, we do our best to respect the environment which is our tool and which represents the heritage that we will pass on to the next generations.
