Gérard Bertrand:
Gerard Bertrand quickly developed a wine merchant business by selecting winemakers and estates that shared his sense of what was called for. In order to express his talent as a winemaker beyond his native appellation of the Corbières, he chose to invest in other wines of the Languedoc with strong potential.

Gerard Bertrand quickly developed a wine merchant business by selecting winemakers and estates that shared his sense of what was called for. In order to express his talent as a winemaker beyond his native appellation of the Corbières, he chose to invest in other wines of the Languedoc with strong potential. In 1994 he bought the Cigalus Vin de Pays d’Oc parcels, then three years later the 58 hectares of Château Laville-Bertrou in Minervois La Livinière. A forerunner in the Languedoc, Gerard Bertrand understood the evolution in consumer behavior towards expressive, well-balanced and elegant wines. By offering great wines at fair prices his success was immediate. The Prestige Wines of Gerard Bertrand quickly became the quality reference in the opinion of the professionals. In the footsteps of his father, Gerard has been contributing to the epic story of the Languedoc in these past years; he is the payee of the qualitative changes made to a good number of Languedoc terroirs and estates. He notably defends Boutenac as a terroirs and fights for its recognition by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d’Origine). In return of his efforts, and as a proof of the quality of his wines, consumers quickly take up Gerard Bertrand’s wines and repeat it again … the development of his business acknowledges this success.

The region of Picpoul de Pinet is one of the earliest civilised places on earth and has been a wine making area for over 2000 years. The village of Pinet is situated near Thau where the noble grape known as Piquepoule was first thought to be grown and which in turn gave the name to the wine known today as Picpoul de Pinet – a wine produced from the limestone soils of the Mediterranean and the celebrated southern French sun. Gérard Bertrand was named in 2012 as the "European Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast and "Red Wine Maker of the Year" by the IWC. Grapes : 100% Picpoul de Pinet Region: France / Languedoc Roussillon Maker: Gérard Bertrand Notes : Pale yellow hew with intense aromas of exotic and citrus fruits, with hints of mineral, floral and vegetable notes.

Displays telltale notes of honeysuckle and ripe pear, with peach, orange blossom, and citrus overtones. This wine finishes in a crisp clean style.

Das Fruchtbouquet ist ausladend und intensiv: reife Birne, Pfirsich, Orangenblüten, Zitrusfrüchte. Im Gaumen offenbart sich eine frisch-fruchtige Struktur, die sich mit dem eleganten Körper vereint. Es ist ein gradliniger, fruchtiger Weisser, der gefällt und zu vielen Gelegenheiten passt.

Tasting Notes:

This 100% Pinot Noir comes from vineyards set at high altitude, among the coolest part in the region. This fruity wine offers aromas of ripe cherry, wild raspberry and spices. The tannins are silky and the finish is elegant and well-balanced.

The average yield is 25 hecto liters per hectare. After “greenharvesting” in June, the grapes are picked in late September when they have reached perfect ripeness. The grapes are de-stemmed (separated from their stalks) and then placed inv ats to macerate for 10 to 15 days. The pumping-over and maturing process ensure that the “best” of the skins are extracted before pressing. Ageing takes place partly in 225-litre barrels, after which the wine is bottled.
