Domaine de Georges Bertrand Rouge 2014, Gérard Bertrand, Corbières Boutenac

Tasting Note

Deep and bright purple. The nose has aromas of garrigue and soft spices with hints of red fruits. On the palate, the tannins are soft. Elegant and powerful wine with a long finish.

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.

Winemaking

Picked and vinified parcel by parcel. Each parcel undergoes carbonic maceration lasting between 12 and 15 days. The fermentation process is closely monitored to ensure correct density of the must. Once the malolactic fermentation is complete the wines are assembled and blended and then aged in barrel for 8 months.

Serving Suggestion

Rack of lamb, mature cheese and roast meats.

Grape

Syrah 40%, Carignan 35%, Grenache 15%, Mourvèdre 10%
