#9, WS Top 100 Wines of 2015

"Gorgeous, with a pure, unadorned violet aroma giving way to very ripe and stylish plum, boysenberry and blackberry fruit. Offers a suave mouthfeel, with anise and tobacco hints filling the background. A finely stitched chalk note extends the finish. Not shy on depth, and sneakily long. Best from 2017 through 2030. 3,500 cases made. "

Product Description:

"The Merlot at Clos Fourtet put in a great performance in this 2012 vintage, as it did in 1998. The wine was produced from fresh, healthy grapes at full ripeness. Clos Fourtet 2012 has a deep vermilion hue, an intense, already complex nose with notes of black fruits and spices coming through together with floral touches of violets and lilies. The palate is coated, silky, slightly liquorice and with a long, mineral finish." - Winery
