More information about 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion AOC in HK - Clos Fourtet

In the glass, the 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion in wooden box from Clos Fourtet offers a dense purple color. With a bit of lateral position, the Bordeaux glass reveals a charming garnet red tone at the edges. The bouquet of this Bordeaux red wine seduces with aromas of blackberry and violet. If we trace the aromatics further, blueberry comes in.

This wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally low residual sugar. This is a true quality wine that clearly stands out from simpler qualities, and so this Frenchman naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily need a lot of sugar. This dense red wine is full-bodied and multifaceted on the palate. The final of this mature red wine from the wine-growing region of Bordeaux, more precisely from Saint-Emilion, finally convinces with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes of the limestone-dominated soils.

Vinification of the 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion in wooden box from Clos Fourtet

The basis for the powerful 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion in wooden box from Bordeaux are grapes from the grape varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Bordeaux. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of limestone. When perfect physiological ripeness is assured, the grapes for the 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion are harvested exclusively by hand in wooden box without the use of punishing and less selective machinery. After the harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks and small wood at controlled temperatures. The vinification is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally bottled.
