Château LES GRANDES MURAILLES Grand cru classé 2020 Futures

A tiny cru of one and a half hectares adjacent to Clos Fourtet, which came into the Cuvelier family in 2013 and has been vinified by the technical team of Clos Fourtet since 2018. Without losing any of their silky roundness and flattering fruitiness (100% Merlot), the wines have gained in purity and length in recent vintages. They now faithfully reflect their terroir, with the underlying limestone giving the wines minerality and distinction.

Bettane & Desseauve : 94-95/100
Revue du Vin de France : 92-94/100 « Le domaine au pied du monument historique est géré comme une parcelle de Clos Fourtet. Le 2020 révèle un beau fruit, sapide, frais, fluide et digeste. Un parfum ciselé, mûr et dense avec de la profondeur même si la vinification en carrière fige un peu le vin. »
Dupont (Le Point) : 16/20 « Juteux, bien tendu, on sent un bon fond de vin, fin, beaucoup d'allonge. »
Quarin : 89/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, fruité et pur. Délicat à l'attaque, suave en milieu de bouche, parfumé, le vin caresse le palais, savoureux, sèveux et long »
Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2020 Les Grandes Murailles is fabulous. Rich, effusive and vibrant, it possesses terrific energy and plenty of verve. A whole range of floral and spice notes opens first as this chiseled, finely sculpted Saint-Émilion gradually unfolds in the glass. A wine of reserve and character, the Les Grandes Murailles is shaping up to be a gem. »
Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « This is quite a solid Les Grandes Murailles, very saline in the mouth, leading to a grippy, slightly tarry finish. Broody at the moment. I suspect this will require 4–5 years in bottle before it shows what it is capable of. »
