    January 7, 2022 - PnP. Medium red, red tinged, 4.5. Cool herbaceous like bouquet with some ripe fruit behind. Harmonious palate, medium tannin, medium low acidity, medium body, again harbes and ripe fruit mixed, almost elegant finish. Drink now-onwards

    July 19, 2020 - Decanted for an hour. Ready now, good dark fruit with a green streak to it, plums and blackberries. The palate follows with dark fruit, also that green streak there, good tannins. Certainly over the young stage, probably won't get better than this. Went well with grilled foods.

    February 14, 2020 - 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre
    from the estate overlooking the Mediterranean
    and biodynamically farmed since 2013.
    Manual harvest and sorting. Varietal are vinified individually.
    Some of the Syrah is vinified using carbonic maceration.
    The Grenache and the Mourvedre are destemmed
    and macerated in stainless steel tanks for 20 to 25 days.
    The final blend matured 12 months in in 225 litre barriques.
    13.5% % Abv
    Proprietor: Gérard Bertrand

    A(ccuray)=2: Med deep garnet. Supple broadly knit blend.
    B(alance)=3: Modulated components in harmony.
    C(omplexity)=2: Ripe berries, herbs, mild garrigue.
    D(epth)=1: Smooth mouthfeel. Even palate and finish.

    Wine Tally Score [2,3,2,1]= 8/10

    Many Languedoc wines show promises that are never fulfilled.
    This one turns out exceptionally well.

    May 2, 2019 - Ripe and meaty with some smokiness. All in all another successful vintage for the Hospitalet.
