Current Stock:

The 2016 Fourcas-Dupres has a very elegant bouquet without shortchanging on fruit.  The aromatics here are packed with blackberry, raspberry, and light cassis aromas, the oak nicely integrated and with a subtle estuarine note emerging with time.  The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, grainy tannin.  There is plenty of fresh, energetic black fruit here laced with black olive and a pinch of brine, fanning out towards the satisfying, long finish.  Here is a great Listrac hot on the heels of their great 2015 last year.  For best results, please open in the morning and serve at 60F in the evening, the wine should be re-corked if not drunk in one sitting as with all red wines and replaced in the fridge.  It will drink well for up to 5-6 days if you follow these instructions.

This is what is considered an excellent Bordeaux for everyday drinking.  It is not a grand cru classed wine.  Many people have misconceptions about Bordeaux believing that everything that comes out of Bordeaux is a Chateau Lafite … I can tell you that there are over 7,500 producing estates in Bordeaux and only 10% of those are cru-classed.  However, as far as consistency is concerned, Bordeaux makes excellent wine because thats what they do, since the 1400s.  Enjoy…
