It's fresh and crisp, with a cut of structure in the background. The aftertaste brings out a smokier, toasty character that does show its future maturation potential. collapse

Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, with ultra-fine tannin and a beautiful elegance and persistence, it’s already impossible to resist yet I suspect will cruise in the cellar on its balance. collapse

A light floral hint hangs in the background. Should develop into a perfumy beauty with time. Best from 2022 through 2035. 3,167 cases made.–JM collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and cranberry fruit, the tannins both fine but firm. This is a supremely well-focused Clos Fourtet, perhaps one that shows more restraint than previous vintages, yet there is genuine focus and intensity towards the almost piercing finish with vivid black, mineral-soaked fruit. This is a superb Clos Fourtet that transcends the promise from barrel. - Neal Martin collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, harmonious and poised, with a long mineral-driven finish that retains a sense of classicism and style. Serious...but delicious. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

The richness and decadence of this are so pretty. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins. Juicy and long. Flavorful. Needs time to soften. Austerity will turn to great beauty. Try in 2020.

Decanter,
Super wine; lovely pitch of ripeness. Berry fruit nose, exquisite tannins and texture. Smooth, fine-boned and fresh, the limestone terroir evident. Tannins abundant but finely etched. Long, persistent finish... expand Super wine; lovely pitch of ripeness. Berry fruit nose, exquisite tannins and texture. Smooth, fine-boned and fresh, the limestone terroir evident.
