Chateau Fourcas Dupre
Patrice's vineyard is an anomaly in the context of Listrac-Medoc, as the soil is 80% Pyrenean gravel mixed with clay and limestone- For this reason it is common for professionals to mistake Fourcas Dupre as something out of Margaux when tasting blind due to the definitive presence of mineral and earth tones that make it into the finished wines here.
Hautes Terres, (or "High Ground" in English) is a special Cuvée from the estate which includes 80% of Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is rare in Médoc whose wines are generally dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon.A fruity and savory wine. The winemaking and the special aging, made with respect of the terroir, keep the natural earthiness and complexity of the wine intact. This combination of “fruit” and “minerality” in a wine is unique on the market.
