Robert Parker 91 Points

On one of the three occasions I tasted the 1996 Clos Fourtet from bottle I rated it outstanding (90 points). The color is a saturated dark ruby. The nose offers up sweet black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with toasty oak and floral scents. It is fleshy, surprisingly expansive and forward for a 1996, with low acidity, and a long, multilayered, fruit-driven finish. The tannin is ripe, and thus the fruit comes forward and the wine is seductive and charming. This wine possesses the weight, richness, and extract to last for 15-20 years, but it should be drinkable early. I would not be surprised for readers to feel my score is too conservative based on how well this wine is showing. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2024

Please note that this wine is on closeout.  Caveat Emptor.  This wine has been stored properly and purchased directly from the distributor in 2022.  It has been stored at 55 degrees since at Killer Vino.  Excellent wine, excellent price.  You will accept any risk that may be involoved.
