Many of the world's most respected and renowned wine critics agree that this Bordeaux is exceptional. Robert Parker says it's "sleek and silky to the touch," while Wine Doctor raves about its "pure, polished, and richly textured" palate. Wine Enthusiast boasts that it has "plenty of power, with a balance between the tannins and ripe black-currant flavors." And let's not forget that Decanter raves about the 2016 Haut-Médoc wines in general, saying that "the wines have fruit and power combined with high levels of silky tannins."

But it's not just the critics who love this wine. The 2016 Château Fourcas Borie hails from the Listrac-Médoc, known for producing amazing long-lasting wines. The estate's optimum terroir, located about 15 miles from the Atlantic and overlooking the Medoc peninsula, is perfect for growing the estate's 25-year-old vines. The 86-acre vineyard is planted on a gentle rise, where half of the soil is gravel on a clay base and the rest is clay-siliceous soil on a base of limestone. When the wind blows from the west, the ocean and its minerals fill the air and influence the grapes, adding to the wine's complexity.

Owned by the Rochette family, who also owns the historic Château Ducluzeau, the winery is now in the hands of Bruno Borie, who took over in 2009 with the goal to contemporize the estate without changing the wine's true nature or disturbing the purity of the flavors found in Listrac's terroir.
