Château Fourcas-Hosten 2010, Médoc
Château Fourcas Hosten has two different complementary terroirs: one is clayey limestone and the other is made up of Pyrenean gravels. As a result, its wines offer a tasty balance of crisp fruit on the attack and multiple layers on the palate with a velvety texture. Subtle, classy tannins make for a very elegant finish.
Jancis Robinson – April 2010 / Score : 17/20 “Dark crimson. Low-key but quite intriguing nose. Full and firm and dramatic. Really nicely balanced. Polished tannins. Appetizing. Seems like the sort of wine that should be a pleasure to drink all its life. The best Fourcas Hosten I can remember tasting. Is this down to the new owners or the vintage?”
