Reconnu par ses pairs, le Château Fourcas Dupré est membre de l’Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, de l’Académie du Vin de Bordeaux et de la Commanderie du Bontemps Médoc et Graves, Sauternes et Barsac.

The plateau of Fourcas dominates the Médoc with an altitude of 43 metres.  It's the oldest geological layer of the Médoc known as the "Roof of the Médoc".
The name Listrac comes from the Latin Lista, meaning limit, edge, and border of the two Médocs, the wooded Médoc and the wine Médoc.  This position of semi-border comes from its "altitude" compared to the surrounding plains.  Listrac represents the dividing line between the waters.
Listrac-Médoc is one of six communal names of the Médoc.  It was in 1957 that Listrac reached its rank of A.O.C., thanks to its unique soil that is recognised for its regularity, its wines and its pool of Bordeaux Vintages of Great Quality.
The name of Fourcas Dupré is the marriage of a Gascony name and the surname of a bourgeois Bordeaux family.
In 1843, by order, and for the sum of 275, 000 French francs, Marie-Nicole Mal de Saint-Géran, widow of Jean-Louis Hostein Dussort, together with her son, handed over the estates of Fourcas and Saransot to Jean-Baptiste Antoine, known as Adolph, Dupré, solicitor at the Appeal Court of Bordeaux.  This was later officially confirmed by a solicitor in 1844 and again in 1849.  Adolphe Dupré died at Listrac on the 20th May 1875 at the age of 74.
