Château Hostens-Picant 2018 – Sainte-Foy Bordeaux

The nose is fruity, fresh, ripe and offers a beautiful purity of the fruit as well as freshness. It reveals notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, fleshy/juicy blackberry and small notes of cornflower, rose associated with small touches of strawberry/red fruits as well as very fine hints of gray pepper. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced, very finely tight and offers a good definition, juiciness as well as an acidulous/juicy frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy raspberry and small notes of flowers associated with small touches f black cherry, liquorice as well as discreet hints of nutmeg. Tannins are slightly firm. There is a very discreet hint of grilled bread on the finish/persistence.
