La Forge 2014, Gérard Bertrand, Corbières Boutenac

Tasting Note

Deep mature cherry colour, an explosive nose opens onto grilled toast spices and cloves. With a sugar rush, the palate reveals powerful and elegant aromas, reminiscent of cooked red fruits. This is an exceptional wine with soft tannins and a spicy after taste.

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

After manual harvesting the grapes undergo carbonic maceration in vats. The wine is then put into 225 litres oak barrels for 10-12 months without being pressed or filtered before being bottled. The wine is aged in bottle for 12 months before release.

Serving Suggestion

Rack of lamb and roast red meats.
