Winemaker Notes

Predominantly garnet and purple in color, with hints of violet. The nose shows complex aromas reminiscent of plums and blackcurrants. Full bodied and suitable to be enjoyed now or with a few years' time.

Blend: 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Tradition (65% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre aged all in foudre) is a classic Châteauneuf that has ample red fruits (strawberries, raspberries), garrigue and leather nuances in a rich, nicely textured style.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
An enticing sanguine- and incense-edged version, with gently mulled plum and cherry fruit gliding along over sandalwood, dark tea and iron hints. Offers a silky feel on the finish, showing a light shiso leaf echo amid the fruit. Drink now through 2027.

Chateau Fortia, France
Chateau Fortia Winery Image
The Domain Chateau Fortia, is one of the oldest of Chateauneuf du Pape. The estate is situated in the "grenade" neighborhood where the lands are cultivated with vines since the 17th century. It is in the 19th century that Paul Antoine de Fortia, son of Hercule Paul de Fortia developed the vineyard and constructed new buildings; a notorized act of 1815 mention a castle named "la Fortiasse". You can't help but feel the sense of the history of Chateauneuf du Pape, when you see the beautiful buildings at Fortia. Since 2016 Sandra Rochel has been the winemaker and essentially the vineyard manager at Chateau Fortia. During which time she oversaw the conversion to certified organic status for a portion of their holdings. She has broad winemaking experience, having made wine in the Rhone and even Hawkes Bay in New Zealand.

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Châteauneuf-du-Pape is white wine. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
