2008 Clos Fourtet

2008 Clos Fourtet – France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (2/12/2011)
Red and black fruits (mainly cherries), red candy, vanilla, liquorice on the “bright” nose and the palate; soft, but still biting sweet tannins, hints of chocolate and black tea, quite long, somewhat spicey after-taste with a whiff of alcohol at the end. Lots of material, this is going to be great. Might merit a higher score. Should’ve bought more of this at primeur. Good qpr. at that price. (93 points)
