The cottage is located on the heart of the Château Fourcas Dupré land. This family estate is situated in LIstrac Médoc.
Recognised by its peers, Château Fourcas Dupré is a member of the prestigious Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, that gathers most of the Grands Crus classés of Bordeaux and a few very qualitative estates not classified in 1855 like Château Fourcas Dupré. It is also a mamber of the Académie des vins de Bordeaux and the Commanderie du Bontemps du Médoc des Graves, Sauternes et Barsac.
The surface planted with vines at Château Fourcas Dupré is 46 hectares in one parcel. Situated between Moulis and Saint Julien, Listrac "the roof of the Médoc" culminates at 43 m. As a result of this, the vineyard has excellent natural drainage; the wind and the proximity of the forest limit the climatic excesses for a slow qualitative ripening of the grapes.
Château Fourcas Dupré teroir is a combination of bank gravel, clay and limestone. In perfect harmony with its natural conditions, the four grape varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Merlot (44%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The average age of our vines is over 30 years.
Thanks to a continuous and methodical renovation, Château 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 cellars that date back to the time of the naming of the estate (1843) are very well adapted to the maturing of our wines. 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.
