Domaine de Georges Bertrand Blanc 2015, Gérard Bertrand, Corbières

Tasting Note

Opaque pale yellow. Bouquet of toasted oak and minerals with a dominance of tropical fruit. Engaging, elegant palate, perfectly balanced; fresh and round, lively yet smooth, full-bodied yet light and easy to drink. Long, attractive 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

Immediate pressing after harvest in a pneumatic press. The must is allowed to setttle for 48 hours followed by cold stablisation (5°C). The wine is fermented on the lees in French oak barrels at a controlled termperature of 18°C to 20°C to preserve the freshness and aromas. Daily batonnage during the fermentation reduced to weekly afterwards.

Serving Suggestion

As an aperitif or with fish and poultry dishes.
