Description

The refinement and aromatic richness of a Premier Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion

The estate

The main defining characteristic of Clos Fourtet, a Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Émilion, is that it is classified as a “clos.” In a constant search for excellence, Clos Fourtet and the Cuvelier family practice sustainable agriculture with a profound respect for natural balances.

The vineyard

The 25-year-old vines are cultivated on the 20-hectare vineyard of Clos Fourtet, planted in clay-limestone soils typical of Saint-Emilion.

The vintage

The mild and particularly rainy winter favoured the accumulation of water reserves, which helped the soils that had suffered the drought of 2019. The early budburst began 10 days in advance. The hot and humid spring favoured the rapid development of the vines. The dry and cool weather from the end of May limited the water stress. Veraison began in mid-July. Summer conditions were warmer than average. The first half of September was marked by an alternation of hot days and cool nights, conditions favourable for the development of a beautiful aromatic expression.

Vinification and ageing

Fermentation of whole grapes. Reception of the harvest in 25 thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks with small volume. Extraction by natural punching down. Fermentation from 22 to 30 days. Malolactic fermentation in vats, jars and barrels. Ageing lasts 14 to 18 months in the property's underground cellar, in French oak barrels (50% new, 48% second-fill) and in a jars (2%).

The blend

The Clos Fourtet 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%), Cabernet Franc (3%).

The tasting

Colour

The wine is a deep garnet colour, adorned with purple reflections.

Nose

The nose reveals intense fragrances of violet and blackberries mixed with delicious floral notes.

Palate

Fresh and full-bodied, the palate seduces with its elegance, its creamy and mouth-coating tannins, its aromatic richness and length.
