Chateau Fourcas Dupre Listrac Medoc
A great wine of excellence! The 2016 vintage of Chateau Fourcas Dupre Listrac is deep, structured and complex. It has an intense colour with ruby undertones. Its personality develops on a whole with velvety tannins. Over time, the blend and elegance of its tannins give it remarkable harmony and balance. Keep from 5 to 25 years.
This is tasting beautiful this year, very enjoyable fruit extraction that manages to be intense but not overdone. The tannins are firm but could perhaps be a little more pliable to fully open up the structure of the wine. Classic, with lovely menthol notes and a good example of the work being done in Listrac right now. Planted to 44% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest Cabernet Franc and a splash of Petit Verdot.
