Description

Merlot 65%, Petit Verdot 20%, Cabernet Franc 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%.

One of the foremost Listrac estates as you may gather from the Dupré name, the estate’s vines sit between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten on a particularly favourable site. The key in Listrac which is cooler than other areas of the Medoc is to rely not so heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon which in many vintages will struggle to achieve full phenolic ripeness and instead look to Merlot and Cabernet Franc to fully ripen and give a wine intended for medium term enjoyment.
