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 Languedoc-
Roussillon. 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
The Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir vines are grown in schist soils, in vineyards
which are influenced by the nearby Mediterranean Sea, the mountains, the warm
southern French sunshine and cooling coastal breezes.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested by hand at optimum maturity. They were then
destemmed and crushed, followed by a maceration period of approximately three
weeks. Fortification stopped the fermentation, in order to retain some of the wine's
natural sweetness. One part of the wine was aged in large oak barrels for at least 10
months, while the remainder was aged in stainless steel to preserve the freshness
and fruity characters of the wine.
Tasting Note
Crimson red in colour with delicate purple tints, this wine reveals aromas of very ripe
red fruits and wild berries on the nose. The full and rounded palate is beautifully
balanced, showing jammy blackcurrant and blackberry, backed by distinctive
woody notes and a long, elegant finish.
Serving Suggestion
To be enjoyed at 16°C with fruit desserts and pastries or simply on its own as an
apéritif.
