Wine Review
Description:
Two factoids tell you all you need to know about this wine: 2009, and Jean-Luc Thunevin. 2009 is without doubt the greatest Bordeaux vintage for the so-called petit châteaux of Bordeaux since 1982, and perhaps in the region's history. Jean-Luc Thunevin is the self-described "Bad Boy" of Bordeaux, an inspired winemaking and marketing genius who has branched out all over France in search of the finest terroirs, always searching for impeccable quality regardless of the official pedigree or rank of the vineyard or appellation. Château Lafont Fourcat is among the best quality-price ratio wines of Bordeaux thanks to the talent and meticulous work of its owner, Paul Marie Morillon, who is a much in demand vineyard consultant for several famous properties in Bordeaux, including Château Valandraud, Jean-Luc's own luxury cuvée Saint Emilion. This small property of just under 20 acres, planted on clay-limestone terraces close to Saint Emilion, is tended more like a garden than a vineyard, with every detail from grape bunch to finished wine impeccably managed by its owner. Made from Merlot (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), and Malbec (5%), the 2009 absolutely embodies the powerful yet rich silkiness of ripe fruit that is the signature of this extraordinary vintage. In the way that only great vintages of Bordeaux petit château can do, it delivers that wonderful $30 bottle feel for half the price!
