Clos Fourtet 1998
Tasting Notes Clos Fourtet 1998
The Clos Fourtet '98 is now reaching 15 years old. It offers a lovely ripe, rounded blackberry, mulberry, Chinese tea and incense-scented bouquet that is now fully open. The palate has a sense of femininity on the entry with ebullient red berries, a hint of kirsch and mint towards the ravishing finish. Lovely
A strong effort from Clos Fourtet, the dark ruby/purple-colored 1998 offers pure blackberry and cherry aromas with subtle wood and licorice in the background. Medium-bodied, exceptionally pure, with low acidity as well as silky tannin, this sexy offering is ideal for drinking now and over the next 14-15 years.
