Sale price Price $180.00 Regular price

The 7.5 hectare, Right Bank vineyard of Chateau l’Isle Fort is planted to 58% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Situated in the small, lesser known commune of Lignan, the vineyard, with its south facing exposure is planted to a vine density of 6,500 vines per hectare. The terroir is clay, limestone and sandy clay soils.

To produce the wine of Chateau l’Isle Fort, the vinification takes place in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The grapes are whole berry fermented.

Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. The wine of Chateau l’Isle Fort is aged in 40% new, French oak barrels for an average of 12 months before bottling. There is a second wine, La Chapelle de l’Isle. They also produce two different rose’ wines, Rose Ultime and l’isle Douce.

This wine has a nice dark ruby color in the glass with a typical nose: berries and pepper, a little lavender and just a touch of earth.

It's powerful in mouth with an explosion of dark fruit and berries that are carried along on a marvelous river of tannins, with leather and tobacco, a mineral and spicy spike on the finish.
