On a recent trip to Bordeaux we had the opportunity to try numerous wines from a wide range of districts and producers. One of the parcels we snapped up was this deliciously mature red from the Lisrac district.
The Chateau itself.
Recognised as one of the great Cru Bourgeois properties, Fourcas Hosten is situated in the appellation of Listrac in the Medoc, often referred to as the 'roof of the Medoc' due to its location 45 metres above sea level. We purchased this very special parcel from the very good 2004 vintage during a visit and tasting in May this year. It is a mix of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc making up the balance. Absolutely deliciously fresh, with abundant fruit and those fabulous mature notes of ripe and ready blackberry. Perfect now and over the next 2 years.
