Clos Fourtet St Emilion 2009
48 of 134

Highly Recommended

Château Clos Fourtet, 1er GCC
2009
Solid nose of ripe dark fruit and a flash of spice. It has zest and precision with a fine texture. Fleshy, voluptuous, brash and persuasive with grainy tannins and berry skin notes. The class is there. It will always be on the rich side. 17 (90)
