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.

Formerly 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. 20 years of expertise
ensures that wines bearing Gérard Bertrand's signature have a unique style, driven
by the fundamental values of excellence, authenticity, conviviality and innovation.
We are proud to represent this leading French name in the UK.


Vintage
While 2017 had a dry summer with lots of berries and not much juice, 2018 had
enough occasional rain to fill the grapes with juice. The harvests took place under
excellent conditions, delivering good quality crops and bringing 2018 in line with
previous years; with the promise of a very good vintage.


Vineyard
This wine is certified organic and "Bee Friendly". The Bee Friendly certification is issued
by the French body for sustainable development, ‘Ecocert Environnement’ and is
based on specific criteria designed to protect bees and pollinators. For example, the
use of pesticides identified as harmful to pollinators is prohibited. The label also
requires apiaries to be installed on the estates. In partnership with beekeepers, the
bees have taken up residence at the Château l'Hospitalet among other estates of
the Gérard Bertrand group. The ‘Or & Azur’ colours on the label translate into English
as Gold & Azure-blue and are symbolic of the Mediterranean sunshine and the
terroirs of the South of France.


Winemaking
Each variety was harvested at optimal maturity and vinified separately in order to
capture the characteristics of each variety and the local terroir. The grapes were
100% destemmed and fermented for approximately three weeks in stainless steel
tanks. The techniques employed to extract the desired level of colour, flavour and
structure were specifically tailored to each tank in order to achieve the perfect
balance.


Tasting Note
A silky and fine wine delivering layered aromas of wild strawberry and fresh
blackcurrant, underlined by notes of spice and garrigue. The fine and silky palate is
full of ripe berried fruit and is interwoven with an elegant mineral streak.
