Clos Fourtet is managed by Mathieu Cuvelier and supported by talented consultants Stephane Derenoncourt and Jean Claude Berrouet, who earned fame for his many years as the winemaker for Petrus. They continue experimenting with biodynamic techniques and strive to be more natural in their Bordeaux wine making approach.
The 2007 was fashioned from moderately low yields of 36 hectolitres per hectare. Raspberry and blueberry fruit on the nose with a dense, rich, and surprisingly full-bodied palate for the vintage. Lovely texture with sweet tannins and low acidity making it an early drinking wine to enjoy now or in the coming few years. – DWM, March 2017
