In the heart of an outstanding vineyard stretching over 100 acres of rolling hills, on the lands of the Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, Chateau Hostens-Picant practices the ancient traditions of winemaking. With over 30 years working the vineyard as a family, their passion and respect for the earth and use of grand cru vinification techniques, they produce powerful and elegant wines which are renowned all over the world for their quality and consistency. This is their signature red, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc from 15 to 20 year old vines. Aged in barrels for 10-12 months. Aromas of plums, black cherry and red fruits like strawberry and raspberry. The silky attack precedes the fresh and velvety tannic frame. The finale confers to this wine a classic style with lots of freshness and a good length. Its potential of lying down is around fifteen years. Plan to decant it one or two hours before enjoying.
