A fresh and indulgent Second wine from Saint-Émilion

The estate

The major peculiarity of the Clos Fourtet, this Premier Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Émilion, is to be qualified as a clos. In a constant search for excellence, Clos Fourtet and the Cuvelier family practice sustainable agriculture, mindful of respecting natural balances.

The vineyard

La Closerie de Fourtet is a Saint-Émilion wine from a 5-hectare plot. The vines, averaging 25 years old, are planted on clay-limestone soils typical of Saint-Émilion. It is the second wine of Clos Fourtet.

The vintage

A cool winter with sufficient rainfall to recharge the soil's water reserves gives way to a mild spring that promotes beautiful flowering. The alternation of high temperatures with rainy episodes leads to high sanitary pressure. If the dry and moderate conditions at the beginning of August help to preserve the freshness of the grapes, the high temperatures in mid-August and early September ensure optimal maturity of the berries. The 2023 vintage is the third earliest of the last 20 years.

Vinification and ageing

Fermentation of the berries in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks, then extraction by manual punching down. The maceration period is 21 to 28 days. Malolactic fermentation in tanks and barrels. Ageing from 14 to 18 months in barrels (15% new and 83% of one and two wines) and 2% in amphorae.

Blend

Merlot (85%)
Cabernet Franc (15%).
