"This estate was acquired last year by St.-Emilion’s Cuvelier family, who has done a phenomenal job of bringing the famous Premieres Grand Cru Classe of St.-Emilion, Clos Fourtet, into superstar status. Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt are now producing the wine, although I do not believe they had anything to do with the 2006. Its deep ruby/purple color, notes of sweet black currants, incense, camphor, and spice box, and medium to full-bodied style are accompanied by a wine with excellent fruit intensity, purity, and length. Good value." -Robert Parker, Jr.
