(57% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot and 7% petit verdot) Medium ruby. Black cherry and a floral perfume on the ripe nose. Round and rich, but with a firm edge of acidity giving the wine shape. Offers a restrained sweetness. Solidly structured but not hard. Finishes with palate-dusting tannins. Another very good performance by this consistent property.

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. It should drink well for 10-15 years. Good value.

Still young but ready to drink in my view. Medium to strong bodied, good tannins, long taste with cherry notes, sweet final. Very good value for money.
