    2014 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B

    The 2014 Clos Fourtet seems restrained at first blush as superior vintages tend to be. However, agitation gradually reveals all the ingredients and intrinsic qualities of the wine. One must earn this Saint-Emilion! This Premier Grand Cru Classe B exudes fresh aromas, with intense black fruits, very present and mineral bringing freshness and tension. To the palate, the attack impresses with boldness -clear-cut acidity- followed by a combination of elegant sap and fine grains in the tannic structure. The 2014 Clos de Fourtet is juicy and perfectly balanced. Crafted to perfection, this reserved Saint-Emilion carries considerable aging potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Clos Fourtet has developed a very perfumed bouquet with pure black cherry, raspberry and mineral aromas that seem very precise and relatively sophisticated compared to its Saint Emilion peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red cherry and cranberry fruit, the tannins both fine but firm. This is a supremely well-focused Clos Fourtet, perhaps one that shows more restraint than previous vintages, yet there is genuine focus and intensity towards the almost piercing finish with vivid black, mineral-soaked fruit. This is a superb Clos Fourtet that transcends the promise from barrel.
