Currently under biodynamic conversion, the vines are around 25 years old and planted at a density of 6.000 vines per hectare. The varietals grown are Merlot (85%), Cabernet sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet franc (5%). Qualitatively the Clos Fourtet advances by leaps and bounds since the 2000s.

Château Clos Fourtet produces two wines: the « Grand Vin de Clos Fourtet » and their second wine « Closerie de Fourtet ». The first is perfumed with aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries, sweet spices and precious wood. The delicate tannins support it's fleshy and deep body. Its peak is around 5 to 15 years, but can surprise by ageing up to 20 years in exceptional years such as
2003, 2005, 2009, 2010 or 2015. Produced in 2009 for the first time, « Closerie de Fourtet », the second wine of the Château is more affordable and grown from younger vines. It's a wine to drink within 4 to 8 years. Château Clos Fourtet has succeeded in seducing international wine critics, especially when it received a perfect score of 100 from Robert Parker for it's 2009 vintage. Other great vintages of the last few decades are: 2015,  2014, 2012, 2010, 2009 (100/100 Parker), 2008, 2006, 2005, 2003, 2000, 1998, 1995 and 1990.
