2003 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion

SKU #1027663 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This magnificent wine, which is just beginning to come into full maturity, boasts an inky/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, violets, and a striking chalky minerality. Full-bodied, voluptuously textured and stunningly pure, this great Bordeaux is one of the vintage’s superstars. The finish lasts 40-45 seconds in this majestic, multidimensional St. Emilion. It should continue to drink well for 10-15 years, but why wait? (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows a singed edge to the core of blackberry and black currant fruit, with alder, cedar and tobacco accents weaving through the finish. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Neal Martin for Wine Journal: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s '10-Year On' tasting in London. The Clos Fourtet 2003 has a lifted, perfumed, more floral nose than the Figeac. It seems smudged at first but musters more clarity with aeration – black cherries, dried violet and a slight balsamic note. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation. This is certainly one of the better Saint Emilion wines of the vintage with a gentle grip, firm tannins and fine focus. There is a little dryness towards the finish and it fades a little in the glass, but this Clos Fourtet is drinking well now." (05/2013)
