The 2017 Clos Fourtet is vivid, rich and super-expressive. Beams of salinity give the 2017 its energy and shape. In the glass, the 2017 is wonderfully vivid and nuanced. Lavender, mint, blue fruits and blood orange all build into the beautifully layered, exquisite finish. In 2017, Clos Fourtet is all class. This is a terrific showing from the Cuvelier family. Tasted three times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

Dark ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, dark berry, florals, smoked citrus peel, espresso and chocolate. On the palate, rich, full bodied, cherry, dark berry, leather, chocolate, minerals/salinity, citrus peel, hints of grapefruit or blood orange. Long finish. The citrus peel lingers. Like forever. Layered and complex. $110 at B-21.

Hittar många anledningar att unna mig på senaste tiden och detta fick bli födelsedagsvinet. Medelfylligt. Superbalanserad. Är såväl elegant som mäktigt. Vinbär, plommon, blombukett, blyerts, apelsinskal osv. Härlig sälta i avslutet. Fräschör, längd och bra grepp. Mkt god nu!
