Schwarz-Rubinrot. Aromen von schwarzen Beeren, Rosen, Veilchen und Bitterschokolade. Im Mund reife, eingekochte Brombeere, Schwarzkirsche und schwarze Johannisbeere, ein wenig Teer. Das Holz passt gut zur massiven Frucht.

Deep purple. Fruit-driven aromas of ripe raspberry and blackberry, complicated by milk chocolate and a hint of leather. Fresh and fruity, with hints of licorice and cayenne pepper mingling with the red fruit flavors. Not especially concentrated but finishes floral and persistent. This property employs two of the keenest minds of the Right Bank as consultants, Stephane Derenoncourt and Jean-Claude Berrouet, and thus one can’t help but expect greatness to come.

Juicy, with a tasty mix of dark plum, crushed fig and blackberry fruit, followed by licorice, black tea and maduro tobacco. The long finish lets it all hang together nicely. Drink now through 2015.

The harvest ran from October 9-20, and the 2008 Clos Fourtet tips the scales at 13% natural alcohol. A blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, it exhibits an inky-purple color along with notes of pen ink, blackberry liqueur, and espresso roast, sensationally concentrated layers of pure black fruits, a full-bodied, powerful style, crisp acids, dense fruit, and ripe tannins. This brilliant 2008 may merit an even higher score after additional time in wood. It will evolve for 20–25 years.
