Aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels, it has a golden hue with nose filled with pear blossoms and citrus fruit combined with notes of ripe peaches, apricots and honey. The palate is lush and smooth. The fresh, long minerally finish also offers subtle vanilla and light toasty accents. A blend of 80% Chardonnay, 15% Viognier, and 5% Sauvignon Blanc.
|From the discovery of the Tautavel man to the Roman hegemony in Narbonne, via the Visigoth occupation and the Cathar heresy, Languedoc-Roussillon’s 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.
