Description

Gerard Bertrand Terroir AOP Saint Chinian

Gerard Bertrand Terroir AOP Saint Chinian, is long-lasting, rich, fleshy bouquet reveals notes of roasted coffee, blackcurrant and prunes, its full, fat body on the palate lends it a remarkable elegance.

The man behind the wine is an ageless-looking ex-rugby international with a thick head of curly hair, Gerard Bertrand. He preaches the traditional French gospel of terroir, and yet at the same time he oversees a thoroughly sleek, modern operation.

A passionate advocate of the Mediterranean Art de Vivre and owner of benchmark estates in the South of France, Gérard Bertrand reveals all the unique expression of the ‘Terroirs’ of the region.

Saint-Chinian is a highly reputed village in the Languedoc region where vines have been grown since the Middle Ages. Its vineyard, planted on the sun-kissed slopes of sandstone and schists, benefits from a cool micro-climate.

Since the 1950s the wines of the Languedoc have become increasingly refined, and the best estates now produce wines of truly exceptional quality.

Gérard Bertrand is determined to drive this progress even further, through continued innovation and by creating internationally-renowned appellations and wines.

Work starts in the vineyard with the careful selection of the plots most suitable for the production of this type of wine.
The grapes are picked for the most part by hand and subjected to a double sorting in the vines and in the cellar.

Vinification is traditional with de-stemming of the grapes prior to the maceration stage which lasts roughly 1 month, the grapes are then pressed before the malolactic fermentation.

One third of the wine is aged for 9 months in barrels, the rest being matured in vats to keep the fruity character of the wine.

The complex aromas of black olives and blackberry come from the carefully controlled extraction performed during vinification.

This wine is perfect to be served at 18 °C to accompany grilled red meat and mature cheese.
