Clos Fourtet is a continuing success. This 2011 is both rich and seriously structured. Ripe, with a mineral character, it starts firm and then shows generous blackberry fruits. Still young, it should not be drunk before 2018. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
This is another brilliant offering from Philippe Cuvelier, who has totally revolutionized the quality of this famous estate. The 2011 Clos Fourtet exhibits a dense blue/purple color as well as beautiful notes of creme de cassis, blueberries and raspberries, a complete as well as layered mid-palate, sweet tannin, good acidity and a charming personality. This is a highly successful effort for the vintage. Consume it over the next 10-12 years. (RP)
Sleek, with wonderfully focused cassis, blackberry and plum fruit, layered seamlessly with polished tannins. Long and refined, revealing a buried minerality on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2026. (JM)
Fragrant with red and dark fruit and a touch of oak sweetness. Deep and cool on the palate, more fluid than many, the tannins already yielding. Juicy and lively overall. Moderate length. (JH)
