I must admit I have a soft spot for the wines from the Borie family (Ducru-Beaucaillou), who I think produce some of the most balanced wines from the Medoc - both rich and elegant. This is from their estate in the Listrac that use to produce the highest Merlot-based wines in the Medoc. The nose is all bright red and black fruit. The texture of the wine shows tannic structure, but the wine is accessible now. Lots of black fruit, chocolate and spice. The long, rich and heady finish is wonderful. This is my pick for a great Thanksgiving wine. At only $18.99 you can afford to have a few bottles for your guests.
