Clos Fourtet 1989
Tasting Notes Clos Fourtet 1989
The 1989 is an alcoholic, exuberantly styled, easy to drink wine, but its lack of grip, definition, and tannin may give some concern. Anticipated maturity: Now-1998.
Whilst this bottle had the edge over the one served in London at the vertical, it does little to convince. A rustic, rather diffuse earthy, iron rust nose that is lacking some freshness. The palate is light bodied, a little dry and for want of a better word, unexciting. Past its best. Tasted September 2008.
