2009 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru

The 2009 Clos Fourtet displays an intense, dark purple hue. This Saint-Emilion's Premier Grand Cru Classe B reveals a smooth first nose with ripe fruits: cassis and blackberry. The palate is full, complex, with tight tannins.

Parker : 95 / 100

Wine Advocate-Parker :
After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Inky blue/purple with notes of camphor, forest floor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherries, licorice, the wine has stunning aromatics, unctuous texture and an almost inky concentration, but without any hard edges. With considerable tannin and just enough acidity to provide definition, this wine transcends even its premier grand cru classe terroir. It is certainly the finest Clos Fourtet ever produced. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring to allow some of its baby fat to fall away. There is certainly enough structure underneath to keep for 30-50 years. Bravo!
