Powerful nose of blackberries and violets. On the palate, smooth tannins and subtle woody notes, beautifully balanced and a never ending finish. An extreme delicacy and a huge lasting potential, one to keep in the cellar for up to 15 years.
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.
After manuel harvest the Carignan and the Syrah undergo carbonic maceration. Following the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the different grapes are blended and the wine is aged in new 225 litre oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.
