With slightly cooler temperatures than those enjoyed by its neighbour Château du Bousquet, Château Hourtou produces bold, fruit-forward wines. A measured approach to barrel-aging gives free rein to the wine's complex palate of red fruit aromas. On the nose, notes of cooked fruit are joined by aromas of grilled strawberry and cherry pit. The attack is well-balanced, developing a solid structure with moderate tannins. Fruit, spice and vanilla define the wine's profile.
