Second label from Clos Fourtet, Wine Spectator's #9 Wine of the Top 100 2015! La Closerie de Fourtet is the rare second label wine from Clos Fourtet. Only about 2,500 cases were produced of the 2012 La Closerie de Fourtet and we’re one of jsut a few retailers in the country that have it. The 2012 La Closerie comes from the same estate vineyards that produced the Robert Parker 100 point Clos Fourtet and sells for about half. In the past, second label Bordeaux have offered tremendous value, but today the best "seconds" offer an even greater value than ever before. Better quality grapes are going in to the second label wines as the selection process for the "Grand Vin", or first wine, has gotten stricter. Essentially, more of what used to be the first wine is now bottled under the second label. The 2012 La Closerie de Fourtet is one of the best value second label wines that we have in stock right now. It’s a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Good, just good. The time window could be holding it back right now.
