The Clos Fourtet '98 is now reaching 15 years old. It offers a lovely ripe, rounded blackberry, mulberry, Chinese tea and incense-scented bouquet that is now fully open. The palate has a sense of femininity on the entry with ebullient red berries, a hint of kirsch and mint towards the ravishing finish. Lovely…such panache. Tasted December 2012.

Deep colour, quite firm with brambly fruit. Full bodied but slightly unharmonious at our tastings. (FV 15).
