Château Fourcas Hosten blason vin rouge

Château Fourcas Hosten

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.
