GERARD BERTRAND CHATEAU L'HOSPITALET GRAND VIN ROUGE 2018

WINEMAKER NOTES:
Located on the coast, Chateau de l'Hospitalet looks down on the Mediterranean from a height of a hundred meters. Having a semiarid Mediterranean climate with mild winters, the vineyard enjoys exceptional climatic conditions: the quantity of sunshine and the heat stored during the day by the limestone and released to the grapes at night, and the effect of the Mediterranean which reduces temperature differences and the altitude which counteracts the summer heat. Two types of soil contribute to the generosity, aromatic complexity and liveliness and freshness of this cuvée: the Gargasian marl-limestone at the foot of the cliff is rich in fossils and provides water to the vine stocks all through summer in spite of the absence of summer rain; and the red Mediterranean soil from the Barremian period, formed on compact grey-blue limestone and reclaimed from the garrigue, enables the production of rich and concentrated wines. The grapes are cultivated using sustainable methods that respect the Terra Vitis procedure, guaranteeing the traceability of growing practices which are verified by an independent body.

TASTING NOTES:
Bright ruby. Nose is intense, dominated by aromas of spices and red fruits (strawberry). Silky and fine tannins underline a fruity freshness. Pair with lamb, game birds or ripened cheeses.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
"Fabulous smoky liquorice, molasses and tar contrast beautifully with lush bright fruit characters; enticing and persistent with a mouthwatering texture and a long, powerful finish."
95 points, Decanter

"Black fruit, smoke, bay leaves and black olives on the nose with spicy undertones. Full-bodied, textured and structured, with firm tannins. Rather complex on the palate with a core of black fruit and a savory finish with length. A blend of syrah, grenache and mourvedre. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold."
93 points, James Suckling
