Tight but showing nuanced plum, olive, floral and herbal aromas. Rather smooth, polished and powerful in the mouth but with terrific depth to the fruit and limestone minerality on the palate. This really has masses of fruit that are fresh and crisp wrapping up in a tight finish that is plush with soft tannins, turning a bit creamy and very seductive on the long finish. 94pts

The Clos Fourtet 2011 has a lush nose of Tiptree strawberry jam, redcurrant, a touch of vanilla and boysenberry. It is nicely defined and quite feminine. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure on the entry and a fine, firm backbone that sugg... Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Rather ripe, but nicely framed by singed apple wood, which keeps the core of damson plum, black currant and black cherry flavors at bay for now. Licorice root and black tea notes undercut the finish, which is on the grippy side. This opens steadily i... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Clos Fourtet 750ml

Very sweet and luscious. A little treacly. Sweet and polished and opulent. Open and beguiling. There is enough lift and refreshment on the finish, which is still a bit dry. 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Clos Fourtet 750ml

Elegant as well as rich, this is a beautiful wine. It has great depth of flavor, the sweetest fruit, deliciously ripe. At the same time, the tannins are an underlying sustenance to the impressive ageworthiness. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Clos Fourtet 1500ml

Winemaker's Notes:

"The final blend was 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It offers an opaque dense purple color along with attractive blackberry, licorice, truffle and cassis fruit notes. It is full-bodied and dense with an authoritative mid-palate, sweet tannin and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally into a stunningly long finish. Precocious and charming already, it will drink better at an earlier age than the massive, prodigious 2009...93-95" WA 4/13 "Barrel sample.
