The Cabernet Sauvignon variety produces a colourfulwine with plenty of tannic presence and good ageing potential, gradually developing complex bouquets in which under-wood aromas stand out.
This is a rounded 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with intense fruit aromas (cassis, redcurrant, plum) and subtle spices, offering perfect balance and good length on the palate.
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.
|Wine maker notes
|The grapes are picked by hand and de-stemmed before going into the vats for maceration lasting 10 to 15 days.
Pumping-over operations extract the best out of the skins prior to pressing.
Some of the wine is matured for 10 months in barrels before being bottled.
|From the discovery of the Tautavel man to the Roman hegemony in Narbonne, via the Visigoth occupation and the Cathar heresy, Languedoc-Roussillonís past is steeped in rich history. At the beginning of the 20th Century, a phylloxera epidemic, coupled with overproduction and widespread fraud, wrought havoc for winegrowers, who subsequently decided to revolt. Since the 1950s the wines of the Languedoc have become increasingly refined, and the best estates now produce wines of truly exceptional quality. Gerard Bertrand is determined to drive this progress even further, through continued innovation and by creating internationally-renowned appellations and wines.
