Gerard Bertrand Chateau L’Hospitalet la reserve 2007

88 points

Coteaux du Languedoc, France. 13%

I’m not a huge fan of Rhone whites and even less so of their New World imitators. That said I have tasted many.

I’m happy drinking this though. A savoury characterful wine. Inexpensive.

A blend of 30% Bourboulenc (never heard of it before) 30% Roule 25% Grenache Blanc 15% Rousanne.

PS I’ve just recalled that I am a huge fan of Chateau Tahbilk’s Marsanne from Victoria Australia. Not that these two wines are similar I just thought I should modify my above statements.
