TASTING NOTES

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Clos Fourtet is a little closed to begin, slowly unfurling to reveal notions of warm black cherries, crème de cassis, blackberry compote and dark chocolate with hints of garrigue, bay leaves and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm yet beautifully ripe frame of fine-grained tannins with a lively line lifting the concentrated, multilayered fruit to a long finish.

DESCRIPTION

Clos Fourtet 2016 is a 1st Classified Growth B of Saint-Émilion. This red wine comes from a vineyard of 20 hectares aged 29 years on average. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soils. The wine is matured in barrels for 15 months, with a proportion of 60% new barrels. Le Clos Fourtet 2016 consists of 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc.
The grapes were harvested during a magnificent end of season - under conditions that allowed for complete and ideal grape maturity - between the 4th and 20th of October.
