Chateau Hostens-Picant - Les Demoiselles, 2016

Chateau Hostens Picant

Tasting note:

The grapes have had a pelicullar maceration for 24 hours followed by a gentle pneumatic press out. The fermentation is made in oak barrels (100% brand new). Aging will be made on fine lees together with periodic stirring of the lees in the barrels and this for a period of 10 to 11 months.

This Cuvée des Demoiselles has a Bright yellow robe with anise reflects. The nose displays lime tree flavours with acacia flowers and green lemon notes. The mouth is both suave and fresh, and, after aerating shows flavours of white fruit and vanilla. The omnipresence of the mineral notes shows the typicity of the terroir and its chalky gravels.
