“Lovely fruit, purity and lift, a modern, classy Listrac.” – Steven Spurrier, Decanter
Château Fourcas-Borie is made by Bruno Borie of Ducru-Beaucaillou fame, making it a very classy Listrac indeed. This is a unique vintage for his wine from the tiny Listrac hamlets of Fourcas and Tris because it’s all Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, forgoing the usual beefy Petit Verdot.
Bruno Borie is an absolute master in teasing out abundant ripe fruit flavours from cooler vintages, making him a bit of a go-to in 2012. Here, he has teased out blackberry, black cherry, blackcurrant, plum, tobacco, pencil sharpenings, treacle, smoke and Mexican cinnamon-spiced dark chocolate. Elegant and dark, this is a versatile wine, suitable for weekday evenings, Sunday roasts and dinner parties.
Bruno Borie’s mother came from one of the oldest winemaking families in the Central Médoc. He makes this red in honour of her, making it a very personal wine.£3 per 100.00ml
