    Saint-Emilion's limestone plateau produces some of the appellation's most illustrious wines, and Clos Fourtet has an enviable location there. The 20 hectares of vines are situated around a stately manor house built just before the French Revolution. This is on the very outskirts of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion. The château's underground cellars are perfect for ageing wine. Clos Fourtet owes its fame to the Rulleau and Carles families. The latter were lords of Figeac.They were the first to grow vines on this barely arable land, which nevertheless has outstanding natural drainage. Clos Fourtet's old vines, perfectly-balanced grape varieties, traditional winemaking methods backed up by the most modern techniques, and ageing in new oak barrels in underground cellars complement all the goodness that nature has bestowed

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    An up and coming estate in the St.-Emilion firmament thanks to a new owner, the 2001 Clos Fourtet appears to be even better than the 2000. Aromas of blackberries, camphor, and sweet toasty oak emerge from this medium to full-bodied, heady, seductive, rich, luscious St.-Emilion. Loaded with fruit and extract, there is not a hard edge to be found in this beautifully textured, plump, sexy offering. Enjoy it over the next 12-14 years.
