1999 Clos Fourtet, St. Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux ($50)

This wine got RP 89-91 in 2000, 89-91 in 2001, and 88 in 2000. Poor thing, it's kind of like Anglo-Saxon law. Few people care to study it or, in the case of this wine, drink it because it sounds "too mature" (RP) and "superficial" (RP), read "boring." Yet if they gave it a chance, they would find that it is a hidden treasure of exciting flavors.
