Château Fourcas Dupré - Grand Vin Blanc Sec, Bordeaux
67% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Semillon.
Grown on soil rich in limestone and clay sand, which gives the wines a great mineral backbone. Maturation in French oak barrels with its fine lees gives a peppery, toasty spice to the lemon-lime and pear fruit character, along with the characteristic savoury notes that can be found in good quality Bordeaux white wine.
Drink now or age for a few years to see the savouriness develop and a rich honey character emerge.
