    does X, or X does? what is the rule?

    Hi

    I'm very very confused whether the words does or have come before or after the noun. See the examples..

    French wines taste better than Australian wines do. - correct
    French wines taste better than do Australian wines - correct

    Are the following correct? Please also explain

    1. France has more good wine than does Australia
    2. France has more good wine than Australia does
    3. France has more good wine than does any other country
    4. France has more good wine than any other country does
    5. France has more good wine than Australia have

    Under what circumstances are the "have /does" put behind or in front the noun? can someone please clarify the rule?

    Thankss!
