Clos Fourtet 2015

Clos Fourtet

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

A Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, Clos Fourtet is placed just on the entrance to Saint-Émilion and boasts some of the most extensive underground cellars in the region. Under the guise of Pierre Lurton, Fourtet’s reputation really began to shine. Lurton eventually left to become winemaker at Cheval Blanc and was replaced by Daniel Alard, who continued to develop Fourtet’s reputation for creating delicious wines. Located on the Saint-Martin plateau, the estate’s 19 hectares of vineyard are planted with Merlot (c.72%), Cabernet Franc (c.22%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (c.6%). The final blend is aged in 60-70% new oak barriques for 18 months.

Mid to deep crimson. Oaky first impression, but with a nice lifted freshness of fruit as it opens in the glass. Dry, tight and finely textured, really rather elegant and more austere than many in this vintage but all in harmony. (JH)

The 2015 Clos Fourtet has a very pure bouquet with black cherries, redcurrants, dried orange peel and cedar scents that unfurl beautifully in the glass. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry, velvety smooth in texture with supremely well-integrated new oak. Underneath the harmonious veneer is a Saint-Émilion with superb backbone and it lingers long on the finish. There is an air of confidence about this Clos Fourtet from Mathieu Cuvelier and his team and it should age with style and panache.
