Château Clos Fourtet

Château Clos Fourtet

Country of Origin:


Should your travels one day lead you to Saint Emilion, you will notice that Clos Fourtet is similar to a medieval village. Its vines almost form a path into the village, inviting you to tour this romantic place.

Clos Fourtet, called “Camp Fourtet” in the Middle Ages, was once a fort designed to protect the town of Saint Emilion.

Times are now more peaceful, but the estate has kept its stone walls which enclose the chateau, giving it a very special atmosphere to which the owner, Philippe Cuvelier, has become very attached. The building’s pale, gold-colored stone contrasts beautifully with the sky in the background.

The chateau was built in the 18th Century and still embodies the splendor of the architecture and the wine world of that time.
