‘The 2020 Clos Fourtet is a towering, statuesque beauty that captures all the personality and character of this site in a wine that marries vertical intensity, power and explosive energy. Black cherry, gravel, menthol, sage, crushed rocks and chocolate all soar out of the glass. This is a tremendous showing from the Cuvelier family. 2030-2060’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 98/100

‘Dark, brooding nose, jammy and ripe, heady and evocative. Really beautiful texture, grip, length and overall styling here. I like this more than the 2019, it’s dark with tons of liquorice and spice - wood is on show, but this has an excellent frame and such allure. Sensual, chalky and grippy in a good way with such persistence and length, mouthfilling but elegant at the same time. Bramble fruit flavours with cool blueberries, pomegranates and raspberries and lovely licks of wet stone and slate. Serious power but not taken too far. This has sex appeal with a gorgeous juiciness keeping things pure and lively. A clear standout. 2026-2046’ – Georgina Hindle, Decanter, 97/100

‘This wine's structure is massive. Serious tannins are matched with generous black fruits. Acidity gives a succulent character at the back of all this dense texture. It's a wine to age.’ – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 96/100

‘Attractively and intriguingly perfumed. Not the most refreshing and compelling offering from this producer. It is very much a product of the vintage so is a little exaggerated and drying on the end. But it holds its alcohol reasonably well. 2026-2042’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5+/20
