Chateau Hostens Picant - Cuvée d'exception Lvcvllvs, 2005

Chateau Hostens Picant

Tasting note:
Cuvée d’Exception Lvcvllvs is the best wine Château Hostens-Picant is producing. The complete processing of elaboration of Lvcvllvs is made with a great awarness.
Producers devote the best to the vineyard in a way to get the best quality of grapeselegance.The harvest is made by hand and followed by a selective sorting and at the end of this period of aging, the final blend will be made.

The robe is deep red quasi black reflexions. The nose epitonizes of anexceptional vintage, with flavors of wild blackberry, but after snifting also floral hints such as peony. From the start, the wine shows a mouth of impressionable power but also a precise tannic frame which combines a long finish and minerality.

Despites its youth this wine is already very attractive and could be drunk on tasty rare meats (Spring lamb) and semi-dry cheese. It will be definitly a very nice choice to go with a gastronomic cooking.
