Cigalus Rouge 2014, Gérard Bertrand, IGP Aude Hauterive

Tasting Note

Intense ruby colour with a mahogany hue. Intense, complex and very aromatic nose; very ripe black fruit, jam, spice, liquorice and truffle. The palate is lush and rich with velvety tannins. The aromas of black fruit blackberries, black cherries and plums - reappear and leading into mint. The finish is long with a perfect balance.

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 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.

Vineyard

Biodynamic winegrowing to nurture the soil and the vines in their natural environment using preparations from plant, animal and mineral origins.

Winemaking

Hand picked in October at optimum maturity. The grapes are de-stemmed, macerated on the skins and vinified separately for 20 days at a controlled temperature. Once the malolactic fermentation is complete, the two varieties are blended and placed in 225 litre new French oak barrels for 12 months. Unfiltered, the wine undergoes further ageing in bottle prior to release.

Serving Suggestion

Red meats and full flavoured meat dishes.
