Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2010 is 75% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, producing one of the best Listracs I have tasted in many a year. A sleeper of the vintage, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine is opulent, round and consumer-friendly, with plenty of incense, red and black fruits, medium to full body, and a lusciousness that is very endearing. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. (Feb 2013)

Producer
It was in the Middle-Age that monks introduced vine in the Medoc. Listrac’s vineyard had a quick expansion thanks to the free trade policy implemented between Napoleon III and Queen Victoria. It was Jean-Jacques Lescoutra’s great grand-father, Mr Ernest David, who experienced with Millardet, the famous Bordeaux Mixture (”bouillie bordelaise”), medecine against the ”Mildiou”. The Medoc has six local appellations : Listrac-Medoc, Margaux, Moulis, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estephe, plus the two appellations Medoc and Haut-Medoc. Thanks to its wines’ typicity and fame, a decree of the 8th of June 1957 gave Listrac the local Medoc appellation. The distance of the river from the vineyards is an undeniable advantage as the grapes are protected from the fogs coming from the estuary, and as it favours a better sanitary state. CHATEAU FOURCAS-BORIE was originated from the union of the estates of Clos du Fourcas and Moulin du Bourg which are amongst the oldest vineyards of the village. It is located on the north of Listrac-Medoc. CHATEAU FOURCAS-BORIE aims at producing a fine and elegant top-quality wine. Indeed, great efforts are being made regarding both the cultivation of the vineyard and the elaboration of the wine.
