Terroir Picpoul de Pinet, Gérard Bertrand, Languedoc 2016

Tasting notes

Pale gold with green tints. The nose is complex and full of citrus and floral notes. White peach, exotic fruit and a hint of pineapple. The palate is robustly rich with zesty fruit and livewire acidity which keeps your taste-buds tingling. The finish is long and well rounded.

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.

Limestone soils.

Vinification

At the height of maturity the fruit is handpicked. Grapes are de-stemmed and the must is cold racked. Fermentation is carried out at a cool temperature of 16°C. The wine is then aged on its lees for approximately 6 months to give the wine added depth and character.

Grape

Picpoul Blanc 100%

Food match
