2012 Grand Cru Saint Emilion
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Merlot, Cab Sauv|
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
Under the ownership of Clos Fourtet’s Philippe Cuvelier, this wine exhibits dense ruby/purple color, beautiful purity, medium to full body and terrific depth and richness. It should drink well for another 15 or more years. Drinking range: 2015 - 2030 Rating: 89+ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Aug 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Iron, smoke, savory herb, dried rose petal, mint and fennel are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Côte de Baleau. There is good depth in the glass, even if some slightly angular contours remain. The perfumed, aromatic finish adds to the wine's near-term appeal. This is the last wine made by Sophie Fourcade before she sold her three estates (including Clos St. Martin and Les Grandes Murailles) to the Cuvelier family, who also own Clos Fourtet, which lies adjacent to Les Grandes Murailles.
