Chateau Fourcas-Dupre is located in the Listrac commune of Bordeaux, which is well-known as an area rich in “hidden gems” that rival higher-priced bottles from the legendary banks of the Gironde estuary.  The estate vineyard has one of the highest concentrates of gravel from the Pyrenees, (80%). You find these soil compositions in Moulis, Margaux, and Pessac Léognan. The vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Merlot (44%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The average age of the vines is over 30 years and the density of the planting is 8300 per hectare. The wine making is done by the chateau owners, the Pagés brothers, with consulting from Eric Boissenot, whose other clients include Lafitte, Mouton, Haut Brion and Latour.
