"The 2014 Clos Fourtet is one of the highlights of the vintage. Super-finessed and gracious to the core, the 2014 presents a super-intriguing array of lavender, mint, violet, herb and blue stone fruits. Veins of cool, saline-infused minerals give the wine its energy and length. At its essence, the 2014 is a deceptively mid-weight, refined St.-Emilion built on weightless energy, tension and class. Hints of lavender, cloves, white pepper and savory herbs reappear on the finish, adding lift and precision. In 2014, Clos Fourtet is a true stand out, as well as one of the classiest, most understated wines of the year. The blend is 89% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times. "

The Clos Fourtet 2014 is a blend of 89% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, picked between 3 October until around the 21 October. Mathieu Cuvelier found good freshness and acidity in the wine and compared it to the 2001 - a straight and long wine. It has an opulent bouquet with macerated black cherries and blueberry fruit, plenty of new oak but it is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, blackcurrant and boysenberry fruit intermingling with orange zest and a touch of tobacco on the finish. It will need three of four years in bottle to fully coalesce, but otherwise this should be a fine Saint Emilion. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

This shows wonderful cool fruits with a deep palate and velvety tannins. Really pretty. Tight and full of potential. We will see if it’s better than 2012. James Suckling. April, 2015.

Bright and pure, with a racy beam of cherry and raspberry fruit, lined with subtle spice and floral hints. The finish is discreet, exhibiting a long, filigreed minerality that plays out nicely-you just have to pay attention or you'll miss it.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.

Blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Clean, and some depth, some promise. Clean and pure juicy fruit in the mouth. This has some edges, some definition and some polish. Very good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
