Winemaker's Notes:

Château l'Hospitalet whites are rich and complex wines, of a beautiful yellow color, brilliant and clear. Intense nose, with fruit and flower aromas: jasmine, peach, pear, citrus fruit, pineapple, but also cinnamon, daffodils, honey, quince jam and fresh cut hay... An even deeper complexity that reveals with hints of vanilla, roasted flavors and cardamom. The palate combines the structure to develop further in the bottle, good acidity and length.

Gerard Bertrand is well-known for producing fantastic wines at excellent prices. Wine Enthusiast recently announced Gerard Bertrand the "European Winery of the Year" stating, "Both landowner and partner of the best winegrowers in the South of France, Gerard Bertrand manages over 325 hectares of vineyards across varying Languedoc terroirs. He fully understands the movement toward expressive, well-balanced and elegant wines that remain accessible and affordable."
