Clos Fourtet, Saint-Emilion 2019

RRP £75

Tasted twice, this blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc rivals neighbour Château Canon with its cool blueberry fruit aromas and a palate of near citrus freshness, cranberry and ripe, juicy blackberry and succulent plum. Layered and dense, the wine exudes both finesse and structure, with smooth and plentiful tannin for cellaring. Aged in 50% new oak. Steal of a price.
