Producer Note

Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France. A
biodynamic pioneer, he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of
Languedoc-Roussillon. Formerly the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year and winner of
Wine Enthusiast‘s European Winery of the Year, Gérard has been cited as the “King
of the Languedoc” among critics. Acquired in November 2011, Château la
Sauvageonne is located northwest of Montpellier. With a long winemaking history,
this Château is a legendary site. The combination of its orientation, its situation on the
Larzac terraces at 300 metres altitude and the exceptional volcanic terroir, produces
stunning wines of unique character.


Vineyard
The Terrasses du Larzac appellation is located in the north of the Hérault
département, its vines planted on the slopes of the famous Causse du Larzac. The
unique micro-climate of this area includes significant temperature variations: the
distance from the sea and proximity to the Causse helps cool the air after warm
summer days, helping the grapes develop a rich colour as they mature slowly and
gradually.


Winemaking
The harvest began with an analysis of the grape's polyphenol content and daily
tasting as they reached peak maturity. The grapes were carefully picked by hand
and carried to the winery in special grape bins, within an hour of leaving the vine.
The grapes were meticulously sorted and destemmed before being transferred to
thermo-regulated vats. Each grape variety was vinified separately. Maceration lasted
for approximately 20 to 25 days. At the end of the winter the wines were transferred
to new 225 litre oak barrels and left to mature for 12 to 16 months.


Tasting Note
The nose is packed with complex aromas of garrigue, dark berried fruit and a touch
of gingerbread spice. On the palate the cuvée boasts elegant and refined tannins
which frame the palate with great balance, through to an opulent finish.
