CHÂTEAU FOURCAS DUPRÉ
2011 Cru Bourgeois Haut Médoc
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc|
This is pure and classic Bordeaux. A delicious elegance delivers the crisp dark red berry fruit. Seasoned perfectly with lovely cedarwood notes and a sprinkle of clove spice. This is drinking brilliantly now - and traditional style of Claret with lovely fruit and no hard edges. L&S (Nov 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Rich velvety crimson. Dusty too. Underneath that a touch of mint. Dry, powdery tannins, lacks fruit depth though they have made the best of it to arrive at elegance overall. Drinking range: 2016 - 2024 Rating: 16 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2012)
