The 2014 La Fortune has a very precise and detailed bouquet with graphite infused black fruit that feels a little shut down at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, lovely red fruit tinged with Hoi Sin and a subtle game and meat juice note. It broadens out towards the finish exerting a gentle grip, completing what is a delicious Cru Bourgeois, just as I found last September. Tasted February 2017.
This is a small property under the same ownership as Château du Cartillon in the Haut-Médoc. The wine is ripe, juicy and with delicious blackberry fruits. It has a dark core of tannins ready to push the wine forward as it ages. It will certainly need time, so wait until 2021.
