Notes
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Clos Fourtet is a little closed to begin, starting off with cedar and crushed rocks notions before scents of black cherry compote, wild blueberries, and dark chocolate emerge, plus suggestions of violets and licorice. The full-bodied palate is packed with tightly wound, muscular black fruits, supported by ripe, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and mineral-laced. The blend is 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Château Clos Fourtet

Château Clos Fourtet

A recent addition to the 100 point club (the 2009); Clos Fourtet is situated on the limestone Cote to the west of the town of St Emilion. There are 19 hectares of vines and plantings are unsurprisingly dominated by Merlot (85%). The new wine-maker, Daniel Alard is ably assisted by consultant oenologist, Stephane Derenoncourt. The team are certainly enhancing the reputation of this estate and it now ranks amongst the most consistent and highest performing in the appellation.
