Château Lafont-Fourcat Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A seductive, fleshy fruit bomb made from 95% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, this wine from a humble appellation seems to be loaded with glycerin, consumer appeal, and excellent purity and texture..." WA 02/13

Brilliant violet color, almost opaque in the glass. Seductive cassis liqueur flavors mingle with subtle, earthy, typically Bordeaux aromas. Medium-full body with fine tannins and plenty of weight.

Translated from the old Latin, this is ldquo;The House of an Elephant and Four Cats.rdquo; Since they kicked out the elephant and the cats (laws in Bordeaux only permit three cats for every one elephant), they now have the room to make great wine. Full-bodied, with flavors of raspberry, currant, and spice, this wine has a modern flair while still retaining that classic Bordeaux style. Pair with anything from the grill; just donrsquo;t let the elephant see you drinking this Bordeaux (hersquo;s still mad about getting kicked out).

Unbelievable value and a simply great tasting Bordeaux! In our January blind tasting of seventeen rsquo;05 vintage Bordeaux arrivals, this wine came out on top! Terrific density and beautiful color, with nice dark fruit, plum and raspberry notes, and a full and round texture on the palate, ending in silky tannins.

Dark ruby, almost opaque in the glass with ripe, luscious aromas of blackberry, anise and lead pencil. Full and silky; plush texture with cedar spice and fine tannins on a scrumptious finish.
