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.
Granite, gneissic sands, black and brown schist and red limestone.
Harvested by hand at optimum maturity. Destemming and crushing are followed by a short maceration period of around 3 to 5 days. Fortification stops the fermentation to retain some of the wine's natural sweetness. The wine is left to age for 2 years in barrel followed by another 15 years in large oak cask.
Grenache Noir 100%
A sweet red to accompany cured ham and melon starters, blue cheese or foie gras.
