It is not often you come across a 2010 vintage Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux in this price bracket. Fourcas Dupré hails from Listrac, one of the six communal appellations of Médoc and usually comes into its own after a decade and can last at least that long again. Composed primarily of equal amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it is made in a rich earthy style and should be decanted at least two hours before drinking. Ideal with any roast meat or game. Bruce Palling, The Week (Jan 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Extremely rich on the nose then gorgeously smooth and polished but with freshness. Almost Margaux-like with a 2010 density. Very impressive at this stage. Just falls away a little on the end. A tiny bit stringy, but very well done! Tasted later the same day: Very dark blackish crimson. Heady wine taken to the limit of ripeness. Luscious in the mouth with sufficient acidity. Lots of tannin but no excess of sweetness nor alcohol. A bit sweet and soft. Certainly better than any wine from this property that I can remember.
