Clos Fourtet 2005

1500 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  581538

Dense ruby/purple, with notes of crushed rock, blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some licorice and chocolate, this full-bodied, massive wine from proprietor Philippe Cuvelier coincides with the resurrection of this premier grand cru classé in St.-Emilion. As the wine sits in the glass, notes of espresso roast and chocolate emerge. This full-bodied classic should continue to drink well for another 25 years. This is a killer effort. Drink Date: 2015-2040. Score - 98. (Robert Parker Jr.,, June 28, 2015)
