"91-94pts - WA A softer, less powerful and less prodigiously endowed Pontet Canet, the 2012 exhibits notes of creme de cassis and new barrique vanillin followed by a medium bodied, elegant wine with sweeter tannin, and less of it, than is found in the great vintages that immediately precede it. The 2012 is certainly outstanding and, in fact, many readers may prefer it to the blockbuster, out of this world, over- ized 2010, 2009 and 2008. Medium bodied, pure and expressive, this classic Pauillac should only require 5-6 years of cellaring. It should drink well for two decades thereafter"
"92 Points- Robert Parker. Deep ruby/purple, with wonderfully sweet, earthy, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit jumping from the glass, it is broad, opulent, beautifully textured and juicy. This is a sexy, lush, heady Pomerol to drink now and over the next 15 or more years. Full, long and impressive, there is no reason to defer your gratification with this beauty."
"92 Robert Parler An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a sumptuous bouquet of violets, melted licorice, creosote, black cherries, blackberries, and espresso. Boasting super intensity, huge, full-bodied opulence and power, and plenty of sweet tannin and glycerin. 2014 to 2030."
"91 Robert Parker A beautiful offering from proprietor Philippe Cuvelier and his estate manager, Tony Balu, the 2007 Clos Fourtet was fashioned from yields of 36 hectoliters per hectare. It exhibits a dense blue/purple color along with lovely aromas of charcoal, graphite, black raspberries, and blueberries. Dense, rich, and surprisingly full-bodied for a 2007, with good glycerin, a layered mouthfeel, sweet tannin, and low acidity. 2012 to 2022."
"91 Robert Parker Clos Fourtet has produced a succession of brilliant wines since 2003. While the 2006 may not equal the prodigious 2005, it possesses a dark ruby/purple hue as well as sweet notes of creme de cassis, spring flowers, new oak, and a steely/mineral-like nuance in the background. Attractive, plump, opulent fruit on the palate is followed by a slight narrowing, but the finish is strong, with moderate tannin. Consume this beauty between 2008-2016."
"Reveals notions of crushed rocks, and sweet kirsch and raspberry notes in a medium to full-bodied, elegant style. Good purity and potential complexity are there. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020"
"91 pts. Robert Parker. 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc. The final blend has resulted in a soft, opulent wine revealing notes of cedar, roasted herbs, smoke, black cherry liqueur, plums, and cassis. This savory, fleshy, attractive St.-Emilion possesses good power and depth, but no hardness. It should drink beautifully for 15 or more years."
"Elegant, fragrant, complex aromas of sweet cherries, spice box, loamy soil, earth, and flowers soar from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-tinged St.-Emilion. There is not a hard edge to be found in this quintessentially elegant yet densely concentrated, savory wine. With sweet tannin, a layered texture, and wonderful freshness as well as vivacity, it should be at its peak between 2010-2025. 91-94 pts. - Parker"
"80% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. Exhibits abundant notes of caramelized black cherries, licorice, mocha, and berry fruit in a lush, medium to full-bodied, richly fruity style. 2010 to 2015."
