Winemaker Notes

The main estate wine has a complex mineral style with touches of ruby. Its personality develops with balance and smoothness. With time the sweetness and elegance of its tannins gives a remarkable balance and harmony. One finds traces of roasted coffee beans and toast that develop with time.

James Suckling
This shows loads of fruit and lovely depth. Full and chewy yet polished and beautiful. Gorgeous wine here. Better in 2016.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Firm, concentrated, dry wine. It seems to be all structure, until the sweet juicy plum fruits show through.

Chateau Fourcas Dupre Winery Image
Thanks to a continuous and methodical renovation, Chateau Fourcas Dupré has kept the charm of a Medoc wine estate and has put together a formidable way of producing wines. The winery and outbuildings are in architectural and technical harmony. The modern wine vats are doted with an efficient thermo-regulation system. The control of the fermentation temperatures is very precise and helps preserve the fruit and freshness of our wines whilst assuring that we extract the good tannins at the right moment during the alcoholic fermentation.

The cellars that date back to the time of the naming of the estate (1843) are very well adapted to the maturing of our wines. The recently built cellar storage for bottled wine allows us to store the wines bottled at the chateau under excellent conditions before sending them to their final destination. A visit of our facilities will allow you to discover the two-tiered wooden vats dating from the XIXth century that have been kept, together with the rest of the equipment from the same era. Every visitor is invited to travel back in time.

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
