2003 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint Emilion
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv, Cab Franc|
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
|Classification||1er Grand Cru Classé|
This magnificent wine, which is just beginning to come into full maturity, boasts an inky/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, violets, and a striking chalky minerality. Full-bodied, voluptuously textured and stunningly pure, this great Bordeaux is one of the vintage’s superstars. The finish lasts 40-45 seconds in this majestic, multidimensional St. Emilion. It should continue to drink well for 10-15 years, but why wait? 2014-2029 Rating: 98 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Aug 2014)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
‘Irrefutably the greatest wine I have ever tasted from Clos Fourtet, this dense purple-colored 2003 is full-bodied, deep, and chewy with abundant amounts of black currant fruit interwoven with subtle wood, espresso roast, and hints of chocolate as well as roasted meat juices. Long, opulent, and full-bodied, with high glycerin, concentration, and superbly integrated tannin, this beauty is a tour de force in winemaking for Clos Fourtet. It was tasted three separate times with virtually identical notes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020+.’ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Mar 2005)
