The complexity and freshness of a Listrac wine
Maps dating back to the beginning of the 13th century attest to the presence of vines at the place called "Fourcas." Following the acquisition of the estate in 1843 by Master Jean Antoine Dupré, it was renamed Château Fourcas Dupré.
While the Pagés family has been producing great Listrac wines for nearly 50 years, Château Fourcas Dupré has been owned by Gérard Jicquel, a Breton entrepreneur and creator of the family group Beautiful Life, but also the owner since 2020 of Château d'Argassac (Haut-Médoc).
Located at the top of the appellation, Château Fourcas Dupré is a Listrac wine from a 60-hectare HVE3 certified vineyard. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on a ridge of Pyrenean gravel and clay.
Winemaking and ageing
The harvested grapes were meticulously sorted in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Vinification in concrete and stainless steel vats for 20 to 30 days. The wine was aged 40% in new barrels, 40% in one-wine barrels, 18% in cement vats and 2% in amphorae.
Cabernet Sauvignon (55%)
