Fortant de France - Skalli's wine from Pay d'Oc
in 1982, Robert Skalli, one of the greats from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, decided to break new ground. The South of France, which then, as now, is rather known for its sophisticated cuvées, was to become the home of single-varietal wines. Five years later, eim bottled his first Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in the Pay d'Oc under the name of the newly founded Fortant de France winery.
Successful experiment - varietal wines for a good 30 years
Robert Skalli has contract winemakers in the region between Carcassonne and Montpellier grow the vines of his wines on different soils - whether limestone, red bedrock or granite gravel - each soil is uniquely reflected in the wines of Fortant de France.
