From the people who brought you Bordeaux superstar Ducru-Beaucaillou - we give you Château Fourcas-Borie, a cracking claret.

The lesser-known wines from the winemakers of the Médocs loftier names are some of the best value clarets around, and becoming hugely popular. Château Fourcas-Borie, from the village of Listrac - is made by no less than Bruno Borie, the winemaker of 'super-second' Château Ducru-Beaucaillou - one of the region's most highly rated, and scored, winemakers. You may have enjoyed the 2012 we had a while back - the 2016 is even better.

The 2016 is perfect for current drinking and over the next few years. Generous and traditionally styled with dark cassis fruit, and classic aromas of cedar and subtle smoky oak. With a little time in the glass, a more expressive, alluring perfume slowly reveals itself, bring a complex bouquet of ripe stone fruits and exotic spice. Some weight on the palate here, with noticeable freshness and poise, soft supple tannins and a rich, intense finish. A Médoc of real class, and great winemaking pedigree, and very much one for the claret-lover.

- Ben Godfrey, Buyer, Mr.Wheeler.

Tasting note:
From Saint-Julien’s ‘super second’ Château Ducru-Beaucaillou comes this jewel of Listrac. A generous, traditionally styled claret with dark cassis fruit, classic aromas of cedar and subtle smoky oak. Freshness, poise, soft supple tannins and a rich, intense finish.

I am asked to review a wine-- who am I drinking it with, where am I, what am eating , is the sun shining ? What I am prepared to say is that this is a good "house" red wine and covers nicely a range of enjoyment from "Brat Wurst" to lamb chops. Open it an hour at least and then decant it. drink lots of it!!
