A solid Bordeaux value year after year, here you find a nice gulp of ripe, dark, cherries, round textures, hints of licorice and a splash of cocoa. The wine is soft, medium bodied and can be enjoyed on release. 89-91 Pts

Plums, licorice and herbs create the center of the wine. A touch of oak intermingled with bright plums and more licorice capped by red fruits on both the soft-textured palate and in the finish. You will not find a better value from Medoc.

With licorice, chocolate and boysenberry on the nose, this wine has good color and soft, sweet notes of ripe, round, spicy fruits. It is hard to find a better Medoc wine for this small amount of money. 88-90 Pts

Easy to like and to drink, the wine showcases polished textures and notes of black cherry, licorice and earth. This is not a wine for aging—drink it in its youth. 85-87 Pts

Formerly sold under the name of Fourcas Dumont is from Bruno Borie of Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou. From a Merlot-dominated blend, licorice, black cherry and jam notes are in the forefront. Light and forward in style, this is an easy-to-drink, crowd-pleasing style of wine that should drink well on release. The wine is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and is aging in 30% new, French oak barrels. 86-88 Pts

Easy drinking, forward styled Medoc, with a good nose, palate presence and it sells for a fair price. Uncomplicated and already open, this is a wine to drink over the 5 few years. The wine was produced from a blend of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot.

Licorice, boysenberry, milk chocolate and cherry, medium bodied, with an open, soft, lush personality that drank well the day it was released. This is an outstanding Bordeaux value wine. The wine was produced from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. For close to $20, it's going to be hard to find a better wine!
