Chateau Fourcas-Dupre is located in the Listrac commune of Bordeaux, which is well-known as an area rich in hidden gems that rival higher-priced bottles from the legendary banks of the Gironde estuary. Its premier wine is a blend of 44% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot contributing complexity and structure. The wine pours a deep garnet color, with aromatics of blackberry, spice, cigar box and fresh asphalt. The palate currently shows ripe fruits such as plum and currant, with well-integrated oak influences. It is capable of aging in bottle for up to 20 years from vintage, properly stored. Try this with a coq au vin, duck confit, or grilled filet mignon
Full flavored beef or chicken dishes.
This main estate wine has a complex mineral style with touches of ruby. Its personality develops with balance and smoothness. With time the sweetness and elegance of its tannins gives a remarkable balance and harmony. One finds traces of roasted coffee beans and toast that develop with time.Ê
