We’ve long heralded ‘second wines’ as being one of the smartest places to put your drinking wine money; the banquet of pleasures that was Bordeaux 2009 and 2010 yielded an even higher grade of wine than usual from the young vines of top estates, and one of the top performers of this back-to-back pairing was St. Emilion superstar Clos Fourtet whose Grand Vin achieved 98pts from Parker in 2010.
In 2010, the estate’s second wine La Closerie de Fourtet was nothing short of a triumph. It’s a beautiful example of how to use the property’s young vines to create an early-drinking version of the Grand Vin – giving you a hint of the 98pt stunner for a fraction of the price. Not only is this a proper, elegant claret which boasts exceptional quality and value, the drinking profile of the Closerie means this gives a fascinating insight into the evolution of style and maturity of the long-standing Grand Vin. With the Grand Vin retailing at around £125, this looks incredibly good value.
