Tasting Notes

"A deep, dense. spicy and smoke-edged nose here, there's menthol elements as well as red cherries, dark chocolate and tobacco. A lovely texture on the palate, immediately inviting and enveloping, drawing you in with the sumptuous concentrated fruit flavours and backbone of oak spice, liquorice and kirsch. Such a complex wine, with so much ageing potential. Could have gone a point higher in score but I think it will improve with a few more years in bottle and last up to thirty or forty. Open and decant if possible at least two hours before serving. A blend of 60-65% Syrah, 15-20% Grenache and Mourvèdre and touch of Carignan depending on the vintage."

The Producer

Gérard Bertrand

Ever since working on the winery with his father in the mid-70's, from his young age, Gérard Bertrand knew that he would be a winemaker and would perpetuate the passion for wine as well as his father’s pioneer spirit. In 1992, he created the wine company Gérard Bertrand which later buys Domaine de Cigalus, Château Laville Bertrou and Domaine de l’Aigle and became known as the renowned winemaker who saved Languedoc.

With 16 estates located on the most remarkable terroirs of the South of France, Gérard Bertrand is the Ambassador of the Great Wines of Languedoc throughout the world.
