The Château Hostens-Picant rouge is the signature red wine produced at the Château Hostens-Picant. It is produced with great care and close attention to detail. For its plot selection, the most mature vines are prioritized. Its terroir and production techniques make sure it ages in the very best conditions. It is available in many places of excellence and distinction.
Its carmine red color has bright purple highlights.
At the first nose, it reveals intense notes of liquorice, iris and blackberry. After a few minutes of aeration, it gives off sweet aromas of spices and cold smoke.
The attack is frank followed by a tannic frame both sweet and still tight.
The fresh finish like a basket of fresh fruits lets guess the greatness of its limestone soil.
