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.
Schist based soils.
Harvested by hand at optimum maturity. Destemming and crushing are followed by an extended maceration period of around 3 weeks. Fortification stops the fermentation to retain some of the wine's natural sweetness. One part of the wine is aged in large oak barrels for at least 10 months while the other part is aged in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and fruity character.
Grenache Noir 80%, Grenache Gris 20%
Fruit desserts and pastries.
