Fourcas Dupre wine has a complex mineral style with a ruby colour and touches of red fruit. Balanced and smooth, this wine has is full of personality. With time the sweetness and elegance of the tannins gives a remarkable balance and harmony. Traces of roasted coffee beans and toast add to depth of flavour and complexity.
"This is tasting beautiful this year, very enjoyable fruit extraction that manages to be intense but not overdone. The tannins are firm but could perhaps be a little more pliable to fully open up the structure of the wine. Classic, with lovely menthol notes and a good example of the work being done in Listrac right now. Planted to 44% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest Cabernet Franc and a splash of Petit Verdot. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038." 91 points (2016), Decanter
