2018 Chateau Fourcas-Dupré Listrac-Medoc
Winemaker Notes: The 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.
Wine Enthusiast - "This 113-acre estate has produced an attractive, while still structured wine. A firm core is surrounded by black-currant flavors and perfumed acidity. The wine will develop well; drink from 2025."
James Suckling - "Fresh currants and berries on the nose with damp soil and some forest-floor character. It’s medium-bodied with soft, sleek tannins. Juicy and fresh. Try after 2022."
Vinous - "The 2018 Fourcas Dupré displays good intensity on a nose of blackberry, briary and light tobacco notes, just a faint sea spray scent emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, quite saline in the mouth and struck through with good acidity. Red fruit begins to take over toward the finish, where clove and white pepper linger. Enjoy this well-crafted Listrac over the next 12–16 years."
