Chateau L`Hospitalet Grand Vin Blanc Gerard Bertrand 2018
Château l’Hospitalet is nestled in the heart of a small region called La Clape and was acquired by ex-rugby player turned vigneron extraordinaire, Gérard Bertrand, in 2002. The Grand Vin Blanc is a blend of Vermentino, Roussanne, Viognier and Bourboulenc, fermented and matured in oak barrels for around 7 to 8 months. This is a fleshy yet powerful wine with notes of white citrus, stone fruits, fennel fronds, wild honey and very lightly toasted nuts. Abundant with fruit but with ample freshness and minerality, this would be a delicious pairing to seafood, particularly seared scallops.
