Description: From one of the most beautiful parts of the Languedoc, this Viognier has fantastic regional character that responds well to the terroir and climate. Rich, subtle and utterly delightful.
A delightful wine with an appealing spicy, floral and peachy nose. It is rich and ripe in the mouth yet has subtle apricot notes overlaid with a touch of spice and delicate oaky nuances.
This wine is made from a grape variety called Viognier. The grapes are grown in the south of France in a position near to the ocean which helps to cool the temperature. It has peachy aromas with spicy notes and a ripe palate with hints of oak.

Gerard Bertrand is something of a phenomenon in the south of France. A local boy made good, he first hit the headlines as a professional rugby player for Stade Francais and the French national team. Whilst still playing, he inherited the family's wine business and has gradually built it up, acquiring vineyards and estates across the Languedoc. The jewel in the crown is Chateau L'Hospitalet, which he bought in 2002.
The estate is surrounded by 52ha of vines but in addition to a fully functioning winery it also comprises a hotel, restaurant and cellar door. Incredibly, it is the third most visited tourist attraction in the region. The top two are the old city in Carcassonne and an African themed safari park.
What is even more incredible is that despite the size of the business and the obvious commercial nous, the wines are outstanding.
