Chateau Clos Fourtet 2010

In stock
France / 750ML

This 2010 vintage combines freshness and power both on the nose and the palate. The aromas mostly consist of black fruits with the notes of licorice and tropical fruit. On the palate, it is appealing and spherical with ripe, close-knit tannins. The finish is straight and very long with lots of freshness following through.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Clos Fourtet is a little closed to begin, opening out to reveal notes of baked black cherries, blueberry preserves and dried mulberries plus hints of cast-iron pan, fertile loam and cigar box with a waft of sandalwood. Full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and compelling freshness supporting the muscular fruit, finishing long and mineral laced. Very impressive! - 98 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


Very dense wine, the dusty tannins floating through the black plum flavors. It's rich, concentrated, complex, with a great depth of flavor. This will always be powerful, while already balanced. - 96 Points, Wine Enthusiast

Very winey, with a saturated, sappy feel as kirsch, blackberry preserves and blueberry coulis notes tumble around, while the frame of charcoal, smoldering tobacco and licorice root keeps them penned together. The tannin structure is significant, but very refined, and that should carry this through extended cellaring while the aromatics and midpalate develop harmony. Best from 2016 through 2030. - 95 Points, Wine Spectator

A beautiful wine, with everything in the bottle. Blackberries, minerals and blueberries. Full and silky. Long, long finish. - 94 Points, James Suckling
