    Mostly merlot with a touch of cab and malbec, it has blackberry and raspberry fruit with a touch of baking spice from the oak. The fruit is supple with fine, firm tannins and a fresh, long lasting finish.​ Great deal for the money!

    When he is not consulting for the likes of Chateau Ausone, La Mondotte, or Yquem, Paul-Marie Morillon makes wine on his own property of Lafont-Fourcat, as he has done since 1993. The estate consists of 8 hectares of vineyards in the village of Pujols in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, just across the Dordogne River from Castillon-la-Bataille. Jean-Luc Thunevin, owner of Chateau Valandraud and infamous “garagiste”, distributes the wines. Thunevin says of the winemaker, “Alors, voilà, Paul-Marie, il faut soit faire plus de vin, soit avoir moins de talent.” (…you have to either make more wine or have less talent…) Those talents are on display with this 2015 Lafont-Fourcat, Bordeaux. The blend is mostly Merlot with a little bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Given the ripeness of the ’15 vintage, there is plenty of youthful fruit here seasoned with a bit of oak spice. Lots of mixed red berries and red currant notes. Bright and lively – very fresh – with firm, fine tannins. Solid value.

    A lot of wine for under $10 and from the great 2015 vintage. Here is a party wine with that tell-tale sweet, ripe 2015 Bordeaux fruit. Great with hamburger.
    Drink from 2017 to 2023
