A finely balanced wine-its immense tannins are mitigated by the fruit and dark chocolate flavors. It finishes with a hint of smoky wood. - R.V.

It is nicely defined and quite feminine. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure on the entry and a fine firm backbone that suggests this will be a long-term Clos Fourtet. I like the cohesion on this Saint Emilion perhaps even a sense of restraint that is occasionally missing from the wines in their youth. It packs quite a punch on the finish with a firm grip on the off-dry finish. Excellent. Tasted April 2012.

Starts slowly with modest dark plum and blackberry fruit but then the acidity kicks in and takes the fleshy core and bouncy side notes through the lengthy finish which has a lovely echo of raspberry. -JM

This is another brilliant offering from Philippe Cuvelier, who has totally revolutionized the quality of this famous estate. The 2011 Clos Fourtet exhibits a dense blue/purple color as well as beautiful notes of creme de cassis, blueberries and raspberries, a complete as well as layered mid-palate, sweet tannin, good acidity and a charming personality. This is a highly successful effort for the vintage. Consume it over the next 10-12 years. - Robert Parker

A wine with super fine tannins and a wonderful depth of fruit for the vintage. Very polished and gorgeous. Full-bodied yet lovely for the year. :-)

After two outstanding performances in 2009 and 2010 expectations were high and given the vintage Clos Fourtet has put forth a very good effort. Aged in 75% new oak barrels. Purplish red color with an expressive nose of ripe red and black fruits fresh earth smoked meat and mineral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied but with grippy tannins and balanced acidity. A top notch effort that will age for two decades or more. Enjoy 2020-2030.
