Tasting note


The 1981 Clos Fourtet is a testament to the resilience and potential of Saint-Emilion's terroir. Despite a challenging vintage, this wine exudes a savory complexity with a backbone of minerality and freshness, thanks to the limestone-rich soils of its vineyard. On the palate, it reveals a tapestry of dark fruit flavors, including creme de cassis, blueberries, and raspberries, all wrapped in a structure that promises graceful aging. With a medium to full body and a harmonious balance of delicate tannins and acidity, this wine is a charming expression of its prestigious classification. Decanting for two hours will allow its layered personality to fully unfold, making it an excellent companion to rich meats and sophisticated vegetarian dishes.
