The opinion of the sommelier

Summer is definitely the best time of the year to present you a nice rosé. This one will bring you straight to the south of France ! Maybe you are sometime not very careful when tasting a rosé. Yet, rosé can be as interesting as white or red wines. In this one, you will find aromas of peony and strawberry and flavours of red currant ;-) 

 

Terroir

Fortant’s rosé is elaborated with grapes harvested around the peninsula of Sète on the Mediterranean coast. The sunny weather in the area is perfectly adapted to the vine’s needs. The winds coming from the sea keep the vines fresh and healthy. The grapes from this area tend to give fresh and aromatic wines.

lecepage Grape variety

Grenache is one of the main varieties around the Mediterranean Sea. It gives dry red and rosé wines. It is notably known to be the mostly grown variety in Spain. Therefore, it is no surprise to find it in Languedoc-Roussillon, so close to Spain. It gives dry rosés with complex aromas of fruits and flowers. Be careful: do not confuse grenache with white grenache, which is another variety!

lemillesime Vintage

2014 was a reverse vintage” will tell you most winemakers from Languedoc-Roussillon. If the year began really well with a dry and sunny spring, the summer was very rainy and followed by dramatic floods in the area of Sète and Montpellier just before fall. Fortunately, in this southern region, the harvests were almost finished everywhere and these floods did not have a real impact on the quality of the vintage. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The Skallis were originally a family of winemakers in Algeria in the 1920’s. In 1974, kicked out from Algeria, Robert Skalli settled in Sète and turned winemaking facilities built to age wines from Algeria in a winery for Languedoc wines. A few years later, Fortant was born.
