Closerie Fourtet St. Emilion Pre-Arrival 2009
This wine has a nose of sweet damson jam. Despite this the palate has a rather cool style on entry, showing creamy jam flavour with damson and blackcurrant fruit nicely supported by a rather grippy character, with lots of tannin, a nice seam of acids and good balance. The fruit has a supple style, with just a touch of juiciness, and a good fresh presence. This is a very appealing wine which is a certain success - within the context of this vintage.
