Clos Fourtet Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé
(2011 Vintage) This 2011 is both rich and seriously structured. Ripe, with a mineral character, it starts firm and then shows generous blackberry fruits.
Wine Spectator(2014 Vintage) A sleek, lean cat, with distilled currant and raspberry fruit that races from start to finish, maintaining tension throughout thanks to a riveting chalky spine. A light floral hint hangs in the background. Should develop into a perfumy beauty with time. Best from 2022 through 2035. 3,167 cases made.–JM

International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 126, May/June 2006. ($60-$75) Dark red. Explosive aromas of currant and plum jam, game and leather. Downright velvety in the mouth, with compelling sweetness of fruit and pliancy of texture. The ripe plummy flavor is joined by chocolate and leather on the fairly tannic finish. Approachable already, this should gain in complexity with another few years of bottle aging.
