Quite a sweet plummy nose, but this has some tannic backbone. Medium body and firm tannins. Drink now or hold. Rating: 88 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Feb 2018)

The 2015 Fourcas-Dupre offers plenty of blackberry and boysenberry fruit on the nose, a touch of brine here, a subtle marine influence that lends it complexity and personality. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy opening, a melange of red and black fruit, taut and quite linear with plenty of freshness and tension on the finish. This is a well-crafted Listrac that punches well above my expectations. Hopefully it can retain this level after its élevage - one to keep an eye on.

Ripe middle palate and none of the Listrac roughness – quite a forward style with good balance. Drinking range: 2019 - 2028 Rating: 88 Steven Spurrier (Apr 2016)

Mid crimson. Real lift and sap on the nose. A tiny bit simple in terms of fruit on the palate. An attractive early maturer. Drinking range: 2021 - 2029 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2016)

Château Fourcas Dupré

A 46ha estate in Listrac, the highest point in the Medoc, with a mix of well drained soils, 80% Pyrenean gravels, 20% clay-limestone. Originally called Château Roulet, Jean Antoine Baptiste Dupré renamed the estate in 1843.

The vineyards are planted with 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Vinification is classical, with four weeks in vats, barrels and amphora, after which the wine is aged 14 fourteen months in french oak barrels, of which 25% are new each year. The consultant oenologist is Eric Boissenot.
