Castel - Clos Libeau - 2018
Producer: Clos Libeau
Grape: Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris
Aging in wood: Yes
Added S02: No
Tasting Notes: This cuvée benefits from a whole bunch maceration of 3 weeks. The wine is aged in old barrels for 4 months. This bottle is capped because it has residual sugar left that could have recreated a fermentation that did not take place. The nose is frank with aromas of spices, honey, liquor and exotic fruits. The attack is on sugar followed by a touch of acidity then a very hot side (alcoholic), a touch of bitterness and tannins that lead to a warm and sweet aftertaste.
