Fourcas-Dupré is a relatively unknown Cru Bourgeois which lies off the beaten track, although vines have been grown here since Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch first owned the estate in the 18th century. It achieves the enviable balance of quality and value and is one of the top estates in Margaux which has a growing reputation. Its quality has long been recognised by its rank as a Cru Bourgeois, the quality level just below Bordeaux’s Grand Cru Classé estates. Fourcas-Dupré sits on a hill at the commune’s highest point and its vineyards surround it in a single block. Its elevated position allows the vines to escape damaging conditions like frost which affect the region's lowlands, making it one to watch even in weaker vintages.
