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.

Score: 91Neal Martin,, May 2013

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