Bordeaux Wine Clos Fourtet 2004

  • Should your travels one day lead you to St Emilion, you will notice that Clos Fourtet could barely get any closer to the mediaeval village. Clos Fourtet, called “Camp Fourtet” in the middle ages, was once a fort designed to protect the town of St Emilion. Times are now more peaceful but the estate has kept its stone walls which enclose the chateau, giving it a very special atmosphere which embodies the splendour of the world of wine. Try this ready to drink Premier Grand Cru Classé from St Emilion.... just three bottles of the 2004 vintage available.

  • The World of Fine Wine : July 2005 Exceptionally vinous, with denser body than most. Firm, long, thoroughbred, engraved with the essence of its terroir. (Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve) Tight, with good concentration and length and a spicy finish. (Margaret Rand) Very well balanced middleweight, in no way overdone (not hot, not oversweet, not overoaky). Fresh, ripe even and long, with a fine flesh and abundant cherry ripe fruit; harmonious, even, complex. One of the nicest Clos Fourtets for a long time. (Michael Schuster)

  • A note from WINEDOCTOR by Chris Kissak: Clos Fourtet (St Emilion) 2004: A classically styled evolution here, some slightly matchsticky edges to it which appeal, smoky fruit too with slightly mineral feel, over some clean but lightly macerated plums. The palate feels very nicely composed, firm and with substance, quite nicely framed by the structure, with fine tannins and fresh acidity. It is a little lighter through the middle than expected, and a little grainy in the finish, but there are some appealing elements here. Quite a dry tannic backbone behind it all though. This certainly has appeal. (March 2014)
