CLOS FOURTET 2015 - 1ER GRAND CRU CLASSE B

0,75 L Red Wine / France / Bordeaux / Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé AOC / 14 % vol

"It's a wine full of class, harmonious and as elegant as it gets" -Jeb Dunnuck-
Sold in 2001 by the Lurton family to Philippe Cuvelier, this illustrious Grand Cru is a real estate, surrounded by rubble stone walls, established on the site of a Roman fort, opposite the collegiate church of Saint-Émilion. So much for the etymology. On the vines, a clay-limestone terroir planted mostly with Merlot (85%), supplemented with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and some Cabernet Franc, and surrounded by large hedges to maintain biodiversity. In the cellar, each plot is vinified separately. With this 2015 vintage, Fourtet displays a style of very great wine for ageing: its dark colour is almost black; its concentrated bouquet is rich in small ripe berries enhanced by the finely spiced and roasted (coffee) accents of stave. Full, generous, powerful and long, the palate imposes itself with its still somewhat firm tannic structure which makes it appear austere for the moment, but which will ensure a very long ageing potential.

CLOS FOURTET

This Premier Grand Cru Classé B, confirmed in the 2012 classification, is ideally situated on the edge of the city, a few metres from the collegiate church of Saint-Émilion, anchored on the famous asteriated limestone plateau. Fourtet is today one of the icons of Saint-Émilion, combining a deeply fruity texture, smooth tannins and a singular aromatic race.
