An original rose with a very pale pink colour plus grey and whitish tints. The bouquet reveals delightful red berry scents.
A slight sparkle on the palate gives the wine all its freshness and brings out its fruit to the full.
The elegant finish is pleasantly fresh and mineral.
Grenache is the king of grape varieties when it comes to making light, racy, fruity roses in contemporary style.
Grenache reveals all its suppleness and cherry aromas. Its fig and sometimes cocoa flavours, plus its rounded sensations on the palate, make it one of the great varieties of the South of France.
The vines are ideally located in Tautavel area, between Mediterranean sea and Pyrenees mountains, 30 km north to Perpignan in the South of France area. The dry and sunny terroir enables Grenache, the emblematic grape variety of the Mediterranean, to express its best aromas.
|Wine maker notes
|The grapes are picked by hand and pressed directly.
All the handling operations are carried out in a carbon dioxide atmosphere to protect the delicate aromas of the Grenache grapes until the start of fermentation which is carried out at low temperatures (from 15 to 18°C).
The wine is matured on the fine lees for several weeks before bottling.
|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.
