Winemakers Note

In the constant search for excellence, the Cuvelier family has invested in and overseen gradual changes at the estate. Passionately attached and committed to this plot of land, they have for a great many years been practising sustainable viticulture, caring for the natural balances of the environment. The wines of Clos Fourtet, vinified gently using whole uncrushed grapes and with manual pigeage, are aged traditionally in barrels in the ancient stone quarries cut out of the rock of the Saint-Émilion limestone plateau. The wines’ aromatic purity and precision on the palate reflect the outstanding terroir of Clos Fourtet, the expression of which the Cuvelier family has been careful to bring out over the last 20 years Key Points - Family owned and managed - Unique natural caves are located below the vineyard - Winery conducted with biodynamic and organic treatments - A very good quality and very well rated Surface area 20 hectares (49.4 acres) Soils Clay-limestone Vinification Fermentation of whole uncrushed berries in 25 small-capacity temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats; extraction via manual pigeage; vatting period lasting 22 to 30 days Ageing 50% new barrels - 48% second-fill barrels – 2% amphora - 14 to 18 months’ ageing in underground rock cellars
