Producer Note
Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France, where he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of LanguedocRoussillon. Named in 2012 as the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year and Wine Enthusiast's European Winery of the Year, he is known locally as the "King" of the Languedoc. Brought up in the Languedoc vineyards, Gérard Bertrand is committed to sharing the characteristics and exceptional diversity of each of the terroirs. Twenty years of know-how ensures that wines bearing Gérard Bertrand's signature have a unique style driven each day by four fundamental values: excellence, authenticity, conviviality and innovation. We firmly believe Gérard will become one of the leading French names in the UK. Vineyard
This vineyard has been carefully designed to achieve a high level of quality. All the vitiultural decisions are geared toward this: from the choice of stocks at planting, the North-South orientation of the rows (to encourage the maximum benefit from the sunshine), to the choice of the Royat Cordon training method with short pruning on trellises. The moderate yields are approximately 35 to 40 hl/ha, from vines producing ripe, healthy and concentrated grapes. Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested and transported to the cellar in wooden tubs. Each variety was vinified separately. A portion of the Syrah was vinified using carbonic maceration. The Grenache and the Mourvèdre were destemmed and placed in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, for a traditional maceration which lasted between 20 to 25 days. At the end of the winter, the wines were racked, blended and placed in 225 litre barrels in the barrel cellar of Château l'Hospitalet for a period of 12 months. Tasting Note
Soft and balanced on the palate, this cuvée has the generous fruitiness of jam, black cherries and red currants with notes of liquorice, spice and garrigue herbs. Complex and aromatic, this is an elegant wine with fine tannins and a beautifully long finish. Serving Suggestion
A wonderfully versatile blend which accompanies red meat, game dishes or mature cheese.
