Chateau Fourcas Dupre 2009

Situated in the heart of the Médoc, vines have been growing at ‘Fourcas’ since the 18th century. Fourcas Dupré took its name in 1843, when attorney Jean Antoine Dupré became its owner. Since 1970, the Pagès Family has continued in the same tradition: attention to detail, know-how and passion. By maintining hig quality standards, Fourcas Dupré, has become known amongst the press and top international critics and connoisseurs throughout the world.

The whole domaine is classified as AOC Listrac Médoc, one of the 6 Haut-Médoc appellations.

Chateau Fourcas Dupré has a single 46 ha vineyard which is composed of more than 80% ‘graves pyreneennes’ (Pyrenean gravel) with a subsoil of clay, chalk and limestone.

Four grape varieties are grown, Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Merlot (44%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The average age of the vines is over 30 years and the density of the planting is 8300 per hectare.

The terrior of ‘graves pyreneennes’ is unique to the Médoc, and gives Fourcas Dupré wines individual characteristics: minerality, smokiness, toasty notes on the finish and a wonderful ability to mature.
