Scores and tasting notes


An up and coming estate in the St.-Emilion firmament thanks to a new owner, the 2001 Clos Fourtet appears to be even better than the 2000. Aromas of blackberries, camphor, and sweet toasty oak emerge from this medium to full-bodied, heady, seductive, rich, luscious St.-Emilion. Loaded with fruit and extract, there is not a hard edge to be found in this beautifully textured, plump, sexy offering. Enjoy it over the next 12-14 years.

Robert Parker Jr - The Wine Advocate, 29 June 2004


Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a slight more mature colour than the Troplong Mondot ’01. It has a pure, Merlot-dominated bouquet with scents of wild strawberry, raspberry, mocha and a touch of leather, all with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with a dark, broody, tarry entry. Nicely balanced with slightly gritty tannins, more classic in style compared to Troplong with a touch of cedar and dried tobacco on the finish. A point. Tasted March 2011.
