Spotlight on Bordeaux

Spotlight on Bordeaux

a href="https://www.obrienswine.ie/wine/current-offers/september-wine-sale/chateau-fourcas-hosten-2004.html" target="_blank">

We have a number of Bordeaux wines included in our sale, but for today’s blog I thought I would focus on a particular favourite of mine.

Château Fourcas Hosten is owned by two members of the Hermès luxury-goods family, the brothers Laurent and Renaud Mommeja, who have lavished money on upgrading what was already one of the leading estates in the commune of Listrac.

At full maturity the 2004 Fourcas Hosten is showing very well, all the hard edges are gone leaving a very pleasant Bordeaux which is very classic in style with pure blackcurrant fruit, complex spice and cedary oak.

But you don’t have to just take my word for it, see below for Tomás Clancy’s note in the Sunday Business Post.
