Gerard Bertrand Ballerine Rose Cremant de Limoux NV

The delicate pale rosé color is inspired by the sunset as seen
from the rooftop of the Paris Opera. The bubble is
delicate, frothy and persistent.
The nose is generous and complex with subtle aromas of
red berries and white flowers.
The wine is precise and elegant, the flavors reflect the
aromas perceived on the nose in a generous basket of red
fruit on a bed of brioche. The finish is very long and rich
with soft and creamy notes

Gerard Bertrand Ballerine Rose Cremant de Limoux NV

Ballerina is a tribute to elegance and grace. It reflects
the contrasts of the terroir of Limoux, its altitude and the
combination of the Mediterranean influences with the
proximity of the Pyrenean Mountains. Limoux is where the
first sparkling wines were born in Saint-Hilaire Abbey
(1531). Ballerina is the Brut Etoile, as the Etoile is the
French name for the Principal Dancer in the Paris Opera
Ballet. The shape of the label refers to the tip of a dance
slipper.

This Crémant is a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin and Pinot noir (the latter being
vinified in red). Grapes are harvested at dawn to protect the freshness of the
aromas in the berries and avoid oxidation. The white grapes are delicately
pressed so as to preserve only the most qualitative juices. Musts are then
transferred into thermoregulated stainless tanks for cold-settling. The alcoholic
fermentation lasts about ten days, between 16 and 18°C. The white wines are
then blended with the pinot noir. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is
bottled for ageing 36 months on its lees. The wine then goes through several
weeks of riddling before disgorgement.
