Wine Spectator 89-91

Antonio Galloni "The 2022 Fourcas Hosten is packed with succulent dark red cherry, plum, leather, licorice, spice, chocolate and menthol. This flamboyant Listrac has plenty to offer in a decidedly lush style."

James Suckling 89-90

A juicy wine with blackberries, cherries and light spice. Medium-bodied. Fine tannins. Crisp finish. A little more fruit in the mid-palate will bring it up a notch. From organically grown grapes.

Vinous 91-93

Neal Martin "The 2022 Fourcas Hosten is pure, focused and floral on the nose. Precocious black fruit laced with cassis is exuberant and almost sorbet-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, dense with a bit of muscle toward the finish. Yet, paradoxically there is sufficient finesse to keep you wanting to take another sip. Sophisticated. Looking for a cheeky Listrac? Step right this way."

Decanter 93

Jane Anson "Edge of reduction, but this has chewy tannins by the bucketful, and a whisk of cocoa bean, mocha and liquorice, intense and concentrated, great ageing potential. Hard to argue with the quality of this wine. 40% new oak for ageing 15% amphora and the rest in one year old barrels. Traditional egg white fining."
