Chris kissack of the Winedoctor...Clos Fourtet (St Emilion) 2012: A nose of real character here, dark fruits laced with black olives, toast and green peppercorn, but it also has a direction and composed confidence that feels really correct. The palate is fresh, pure, composed and cool, the fruit dark and spicy, laced with black olive as per the nose, also black bean, toast and black cherry. I find some really savoury character here, a wine of great substance, great composure too, really high quality, filled with energy and spice, but balanced and true. It is difficult to find a wine that combines such confidence with energy and balance in this vintage. This is just delicious, and a top result of which Mathieu Cuvelier should be proud. From a 2012 Bordeaux report at four years of age. 18/20 (November 2016)
