Here you go, Doug:

Ces dernières favorisent les foires, ces endroits où les marchands se rencontraient à date fixe, la plus célèbre étant celle de Lendit (de l'ancien français l'endit, du latin indictum, "ce qui est fixé"), dans la plaine Saint-Denis près de Paris, et où l'on vendait en particulier le parchemin pour les universités et ce durant environ deux semaines, jusqu'à la Saint-Jean.

I can't believe one of our Francophones hasn't chimed in on this......

Babelfish converted that into:

These last support the fairs, these places where the merchants met on fixed date, most famous being that of Lendit (of former French the endit, Latin indictum, "what is fixed"), in the Saint-Denis plain close to Paris, and where one sold in particular the parchment for the universities and it lasting approximately two weeks, until Midsummer's Day.

Difficult to extract contextually what it could be.

Thank you everyone for your answers. The phrase is on a bottle of wine that I have:

Weinbach
Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvée Ste.-Catherine L'Inédit 2005

So, I went to Domaine Weinbach's website and found this:

"L'Inédit" ("the original one") is from the most beautiful plots. It is only produced when Riesling reaches an exceptional maturity. This choice cuvée is suave, delicate, and wonderful on its own, or with a lobster, or even with scallops.
