Tasted April 2023. With a new team at Fourcas-Dupré, we were delighted with the quality tasting it en primeur. It's got wonderful balance and savoury-tinged bramble and cassis fruit. This is an estate on the up, and from the far less renowned appellation of Listrac, it provides excellent value.
Powerful tannins, intense colour, with well textured damson and black cherry fruit, alongside the cocoa bean, espresso and spice of the vintage, tempered by savoury notes of cherry pit and mint. This is well executed, with carefully extracted muscular tannins. 40% new oak, 40% one year barrels, 2% amphora and 18% cement vats. Gérard Jicquel owner since 2019, the estate now has a new winery. An excellent wine, one to look out for.
Another terrific Listrac, the dense purple-hued 2022 Château Fourcas Dupré boasts a solid perfume of ripe cassis, violets, sappy herbs, and graphite. With medium to full-bodied richness on the palate, it has ripe tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish.
The 2022 Fourcas-Dupré offers up attractive aromas of sweet cassis, violets and plums, followed by a medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with lively acids but assertive, firm tannins that might have been mitigated by a gentler touch during extraction, given the vintage's tannic weight. Will élevage be kind to it?
