Intense ruby red color, purple reflections. Complex and fine nose: mineral toasted notes, black fruit jam, spices. The mouth is frank from the start and increases in power throughout the tasting. Lots of fat and coating in the mid-palate, then a more tense and chiseled finish. Notes of brandy fruit, blueberries, spices. The tannins still need a little aging to fully soften. Very good persistence.

Château Fortia Chateauneuf-du-Pape ‘Cuvée du Baron’ 2019
We find in this wine a balance “forgotten”, dominated by black fruit, the aromas remain fresh, which is a sign of harvest harvested at perfect maturity. This wine is certainly calibrated to age many years.
