The origins of Fourcas Dupré can be traced back to the mid 19th century when, in 1843, the lawyer Jean Baptiste Antoine Dupré, a member of the Bordeaux Appeal Court, bought the property.

 

The estate is now run by Patrice Pagès, nephew of the late Marc Pagès of Château La Tour de By.

 

The white wine is a new departure for this fine Listrac property. It is produced from grapes from a 1.2 hectare vineyard situated on the side of the gravel ridge where most of the property’s vines are sited. 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon, the grapes are hand picked and fermented in oak barriques followed by ageing in wood with regular bâtonage (lees stirring) to add real depth of flavour and mouthfeel to the wine.

 

Pale straw in colour, the nose is fresh with citrus notes and hints of exotic fruits. The palate is dry with full, ripe fruit supported nicely by firm balancing acidity.
