2018 Château Fourcas-Borie  (Listrac-Médoc) 90

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

2017 Château Fourcas-Borie  (Listrac-Médoc) 90

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. 90 Points

2012 Château Fourcas-Borie  (Listrac-Médoc) 87

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
