Chateau Fourcas Hosten 2009

86 points

Listrac, Medoc. 13%

A bit hard and extracted. Some bitter flavours. Concentrated, rich. Lacks the succulence of 2009, much more like some of the minor 2005 that were souped up. Some minor Chateaux perhaps getting a bit too excited by the vintage or just not knowing what to do with grapes that had so much ripeness and dry extract?
