Outer quote mark Fully ripe dark fruit. Lightly perfumed. Good harmony on the mid palate, lightish but refined and fresh. Maybe the tannins are just slightly drying on the finish. Drink 2017-2025 Inner quote mark (10/2014)

James Suckling

Outer quote mark Some blueberry and mineral character, a light to medium body and a simple finish. Turns a little lean. But good flavors. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

I always found that Fourcas Hostein wines retain a nice balance between the old school style and the ripeness of the fruit. The 2012 is no exception. A bit of technical information: 50% of the vineyards is planted on gravelly soil in the area called "Le Fourcas", the other 50% is located on a clayey-chalky soil opposite the Château. As for the élevage, it spent 12 months in barriques (1/3 new)- 56% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

A great value from the people who make expensive accessories-Hermes. They have put millions into the property and the wines are now quite elegant and delicious. You can buy a case of this wine for much less than their store products. Try this one after opening 1/2 hour.
Drink from 2015 to 2020
