Tasted June 2008: The first successful vintage after decades of often mediocre wines from this well-situated estate in Saint-Emilion, this Clos Fourtet 1989 is a hugely attractive wine, unquestionably of premier grand cru classé quality. Ripe garnet colour with an intense core, a classic, very shapely and noble bouquet, perfumed and nuanced, with beguiling finesse. In the mouth almost Medoc-like: rich, extremely refined, elegant, with a lovely texture and perfect weight, nuances of ripe plums and lovely integrated oak. A dry, slightly austere, lingering aftertaste. A perfect wine to drink with fine food. Drink now.
