Chateau de la Huste
Chateau de la huste is a domain in the Fronsac appellation , owned and vinified by Chateau Dalem . The wine is produced from a 5-hectare big vineyard that Brigitte Rullier-Loussert has inherited from her mother. The vineyards are located on the upper parts of the hills surrounding the town of Saillans. Hence the name of the castle, " La huste " means " hill " in Old French.
The work in the vineyard and vinification processes are identical to those of Château Dalem , except the maturing of the wine; it matures only half in French oak barrels and half in concrete vats .
