Clos Fourtet 2021 – Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fruity and reveals a lovely harmony and delicacy in its racy power. There are notes of pulpy blackberry, violet, bright blackcurrant and more slightly ripe raspberry, violet plum combined with delicate touches of roasted cherry as well as fine hints of liquorice, bourbon vanilla, a very discreet hint of delicate sweet spices and a subtle touch of bergamot. The palate is fruity, elegant, racy, melodious and offers juiciness, acidity, good definition, depth, purity (of fruit), a multi-layered side, an airy side, a beautiful acidity, finesse, fine density and a very fine richness. Fleshy fruit and freshness. The palate is nicely marked by the terroir. On the palate this wine expresses notes of bright red cherry, pulpy strawberry/ and more slightly juicy/acidic blackcurrant combined with touches of blueberry, violet, fine hints of star anise, caramelisation, toastiness, a discreet hint of bergamot, fresh flowers as well as a subtle almost bergamot and vanilla. A nice saltiness/savour. Subtle chewiness on the finish. Good work on the bitter taste in the background. Good length. The tannins are soft and fine.
