Clos Fourtet

Located at the gates of the medieval city on underground quarries, Clos Fourtet owes its name to "Camp Fourtet", a fortified place which served to protect Saint-Emilion in the Middle Ages. Made famous by its owners, the lords of Figeac in the 18th century, the walled estate includes an 18.7-hectare vineyard in one piece and a residence built during the Ancien Régime.

Bought in 2001 by Philippe Cuvelier from the Lurton family, Clos Fourtet has a naturally drained terroir made up of clay-limestone soil with low topsoil. The vines, which have an average age of 25 years, are worked in a traditional and reasoned way: use of organic and mineral fertilizers, disbudding, protection of the embryos of bunches and vines against diseases, mites or fungi, leaf stripping, green harvest to optimize concentration.
