Deep red with violet glints. On the nose the wine gives a rich bouquet of forest fruits and garrigue, thyme, sage and rosemary. The palate is soft and round with soft tannins neatly framing the fruit. The finish is long with a fresh minerality.
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.
Saint Chinian is a highly reputed village in the Languedoc region where vines have grown since the Middle Ages. The vineyard is planted on the sun-kissed slopes of sandstone and schists and benefits from a cool microclimate.
The grapes were carefully hand picked, parcel by parcel. Each of the varietals was macerated for approximately three weeks. Once complete, the finest cuvées were selected for blending before being transferred into Bordeaux oak barrels for eight months. The wine was lightly fined just before bottling.
Grilled red meats and mature cheeses.
