Fourcas Dupre 2009 is now beginning to open up and show the evocative style of the 2009 vintage really well. It is still an infant mind, with ten years life ahead. The smoky coffe bean flavours are starting to emerge. Medium to full bodied ideal with full flavoured and savoury dishes.
Chateau Fourcas Dupre is one of the top estates in the Medoc's commune of Listrac, a sleepy village a few kilometres west of Saint Julien. The word Listrac comes from the Latin Listra meaning limit or edge, signifying the outer extent of the Medoc vineyards. The soil gives a smoky minerality to the long lived wines, which are made proportionately from, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44 % Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. There is a long history of dedicated wine-making and vineyard micro-management here, back to the mid-nineteenth century.
"A great value Northern Medoc Cru Bourgeois, plenty of rusticity with ample overlay of ripe fruit." WJ Gardener
