Reviews for 2011 Clos Fourtet Bordeaux Blend

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, May 2014
Clos Fourtet is a continuing success. This 2011 is both rich and seriously structured. Ripe, with a mineral character, it starts firm and then shows generous blackberry fruits. Still young, it should not be drunk before 2018.

Sleek, with wonderfully focused cassis, blackberry and plum fruit, layered seamlessly with polished tannins. Long and refined, revealing a buried minerality on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2026. – JM

91+ Bright, deep ruby. Black cherry, blackcurrant, road tar, espresso and exotic oak spices on the brooding nose. Enters the mouth supple and pliant, with dark cherry and sweet spice flavors, but a strong tannic core... 91+ Bright, deep ruby. Black cherry, blackcurrant, road tar, espresso and exotic oak spices on the brooding nose. Enters the mouth supple and pliant, with dark cherry and sweet spice flavors, but a strong tannic core gives the wine considerable structure and weight. Sound acidity lifts the cocoa note on the long back end, with the new oak sweetening but not overwhelming the wine's fruit. Needs time. Stephane Derenoncourt began collaborating here in 2001 ("I should probably have cut back on the use of new oak sooner," he admitted), and he's very happy with the 2011. -- Ian D'Agata

A solid wine with berry and chocolate character. Full body, polished tannins. Needs time to come together. Better in 2017.
