The Château Hostens-Picant rouge is the signature red wine produced at the Château Hostens-Picant. The robe of Château Hostens-Picant 2016 is a dark red with brilliant reflections. From the first nose, this solar vintage is smelt with notes of plums, cherry plums, then notes of red berries such as the strawberry and the 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 Þfteen years. Plan to carafe it one or two hours before enjoying it.
