Description

In the 1980s and 90s, under the watchful guidance of the Lurton family, Clos Fourtet began to acquire fame for its fine red wines: and was awarded Bordeaux’s Grand Cru Classé status in 1996.

In 2001 Clos Fourtet was bought by Paris businessman Philippe Cuvelier, who seems just as committed as the former owner Pierre Lurton in pursuing the same rich vein of quality. Since his arrival he has already overseen a complete modernisation of both Clos Fourtet’s vineyards and the cellar.

CRITIC REVIEWS

CRITIC SCORE:
98/100

Dense ruby/purple, with notes of crushed rock, blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some licorice and chocolate, this full-bodied, massive wine from proprietor Philippe Cuvelier coincides with the resurrection of this premier grand cru classé in St.-Emilion. As the wine sits in the glass, notes of espresso roast and chocolate emerge. This full-bodied classic should continue to drink well for another 25 years. This is a killer effort.
98/100 - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate
