Intense ruby colour with amber tints. A bouquet of garrigue, jam and spices. Subtle notes of black fruit and gingerbread. On the palate the cuvee Pica Broca shows fine, elegant tannins and gives a good balance with the wine's lively character.
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.
The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before being transferred to temperature controlled vats. Each grape variety is vinified separately. Maceration lasts around 20 to 25 days. At the end of winter the wines are transferred to new 225 litre barrels where they mature for between 12 and 16 months.
