The anchor is an integral part of Sète’s coat of arms. It symbolizes hope and the stability of the maritime heritage of its port, which is still one of the busiest on the French Mediterranean coast.
Based on the expertise of four generations of winemakers, we want to reflect the diversity and the richness of opportunity across the Languedoc region with a full qualitative approach encompassing all the key elements from the vines to the wines.
Harvested by night to keep the freshness, each vineyard lot is fermented separately after a 4 days pre-fermentation cold soak which brings bright fruit & color and silky tannins. Some selected lots are fermented with French oak for richness and length. After gentle pressing and 3 months of aging on fine lees for maturation, each component is blended to create the Fortant de France signature.
Winemaker notes: This wine is deep purplish red in color and features an intense nose with notes of blueberry and violet. Round and delectable on the palate with lovely flavors of freshly picked black fruit.
