3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Gerard Bertrand is passionate about the Mediterranean Art de Vivre and is a specialist producer of premium wines from the south of France. In his ReserveSpeciale range he reveals the elegant, generous array of fruity flavours produced by the very best terroirs in the region. The exceptional terroirs of the Languedoc enjoy optimum sunshine and low rainfall, bringing out all the complexity of the regionís emblematic grape varieties and thus producing top-quality wines.

Tasting notes
The Pinot Noir is a fragile, demanding variety which is capable of producing extremely fine red wines. It produces nicely rounded and fruity wines which should be opened when young. In more concentrated versions produced from low-yield vines, the wines gain in structure and aromatic complexity with sometimes velvety textures and great ageing potential. This 100% Pinot Noir comes from vineyards in the regionís coolest areas set at altitude. It is a fruity wine offering notes of ripe cherry, wild raspberry and spices, as well as silky tannins and an elegant, balanced finish.

Wine maker notes
After the “green harvestingĒ in June, the grapes are picked in late September when perfectly ripe. The average yield is 25 hectolitre per hectare. The grapes are de-stemmed before being placed in vats for maceration that lasts 10 to 15 days. Pumping-over operations extract the best out of the skins prior to pressing. The wine is partially matured in 225-litre barrels before being bottled.
