Fortant de France 'Terroir d'Altitude' Chardonnay 2021
GOLD MEDAL: Chardonnay du Monde 2023
SILVER MEDAL: Mundus Vini 2023
91 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Beautifully styled and elegantly expressed, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, lemon zest, fig and oatmeal aromas on the nose, followed by a finely flowing palate that's delightfully ripe and creamy. Well balanced by juicy acidity, offering charming drinking. At its best: now to 2025."
- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The story of Fortant began in the 1920s with the Skalli family. Originally from Algeria, Robert Skalli fell in love with the wines of southern France. Thus began his affair with the grape, planting vines in his home country and producing wines of generosity from low-yielding vines. In 1961, Robert’s son Francis fell in love with the very same French wines, the Languedoc-Roussillon in particular. The beautiful backdrop of the Med became Fortant HQ, now over four generations. Throughout the Languedoc Roussillon, Fortant employ three unique terroirs and a warm climate to produce a range of excellent wines styles.
