Full Wine

This indicator represents the body of the wine – “1” being the lightest like a Beaujolais and “5” being the most full-bodied like a wine from the Minervois.

This is a fabulous wine and offers excellent value. This “second wine” made from younger vines with less ageing than its “parent”, can be enjoyed now but with its ripe tannins, it can also be kept another five years. Clos Fourtet is one of the handful of walled vineyards or “clos” remaining and its wine is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, making rich ripe wines that have been aged in new oak. Dark and intense wine.
