Château l'Hospitalet Grand Vin Rouge 2017

Château l’Hospitalet is the jewel of the Languedoc-Roussillon's crown. Situated in AOP La Clape, among 1,000 hectares of garrigue, it benefits from an exceptional terroir. The wines are imbued with freshness from sea breezes, mineral depth and texture from the limestone soils and warm southern climate generosity. The vines are cultivated organically and biodynamically. A blend of Syrah (60%) Grenache (30%) and Mourvèdre (10%), only the highest quality fruit is used in this cuvée. Each variety was vinified separately and at the end of winter, the wines were racked to new 225 litre casks where they spent 12 to 16 months, with fine bâtonnage from time to time. Only the best barrels were selected and blended to make the final wine. The Château l'Hospitalet Grand Vin delivers an intense bouquet dominated by spicy notes underpinned by rich, red fruits. The fleshy, balanced and elegantly structured palate reveals silky tannins which highlight the opulent fruit through to a long finish. Perfect with rich red meat dishes or mature cheese.
