Fourcas Hosten

Renaud and Laurent Momméja
Thanks to a highly unusual terroir that accounts for the wine’s subtle balance, Château Fourcas Hosten has enjoyed a fine reputation for nearly two hundred years.

Located in the heart of the village of Listrac, in the middle of 3-hectare English-style grounds, the 18th century country manor house overlooks a clay-limestone plain where Merlot grapes express all their goodness. Further north, Cabernet Sauvignon vines are very much at home on the gravel soil of the plateau de Fourcas.

While making sure to respect centuries-old traditions and longstanding Médoc winemaking expertise, the new owners, Renaud and Laurent Momméja, are also committed to providing the most up-to-date facilities and techniques. Everything possible is done to express the character and elegance of Fourcas Hosten.
