Fourcas Hosten

Visit with Bordeaux brokers of Chateau Fourcas Hosten , Listrac Médoc, which was purchased in 2006 by the families of Renaud and Laurent Mommeja (shareholders of the Hermes Group) and since all human and financial resources have been made available to this wine to make it one of the best in Medoc.

You just need to do a vertical of Fourcas Hosten to realize that something great is happening starting with this 2010. This wine has certainly benefited from the talent of the young female enologist, the work in the vineyards and the new cellar.

Furthermore, they are still a good value, which gives us even more pleasure to defend it. I was amazed by this 2010, I loved the 2009 and I was also surprised by the quality of 2003.
With our meal, the 1989 was served in a pitche and was of the level of a first growth. Was it due to the atmosphere, the bottle? Anyway it is a pity there are no more for sale!
