Description

A lovely country manor house on 3 hectares of magnificent grounds beside a Romanesque church, Château Fourcas Hosten is located in the heart of Listrac, a peaceful village that gave its name to the appellation. In 1810, Monsieur Hosten sold the estate to the de Saint-Affrique family, who created Château Fourcas Hosten and gave it an international reputation. The brothers Renaud and Laurent Momméja acquired the château during the 2006 vintage and were determined to breathe new life into this beautiful two hundred year old estate: “We fell in love with this wonderful property and its fine wine, and wanted to write a new page of our family’s history - one including Château Fourcas Hosten”. It is in this spirit that they undertook an ambitious renovation project including a new vat room with concrete, wooden, and stainless steel vats, as well as new cellars and major restructuring of the vineyard.
