2016 Lafont-Fourcat, Bordeaux Rouge

SKU #1439179 Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Made with help of Jean-Luc Thunevin, the 2016 Château Lafont Fourcat is a larger production cuvée from vines near Castillon. It's a total winner and offers lots of black and blue fruits, plenty of leafy herbs, and hints of tobacco, medium body, supple tannins, and terrific balance. It's another sleeper readers should snatch up and drink over the coming 4-5 years. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2016 Lafont-Fourcat is a forward, supple Bordeaux Supérieur to drink now and over the next handful of years. Hints of leather, smoke and tobacco add shades of nuance to this mid-weight, pleasantly hearty red. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Solid Bordeaux at a laughably low price, this has all the things more serious Bordeaux drinkers want along with the accessibility you'd expect from this producer. With a noticeable sweet fruit note but also a savory backing, this can run the gamut of food pairings. Floral notes mix with black tea on the nose, while the sweet cedar flavors rise out of the palate along with cherry and smoke. With tame tannins for its youth, you don't have to wait to drink this at all.
