INFO: Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France. The grapes are grown in a vineyard which borders the Mediterranean Sea, where the oceanic influence tempers the warm Mediterranean climate. The vines are grown in a limestone soil, which coupled with the oceanic breeze produces fresh, elegant wines.
To reduce the risk of oxidation, the grapes were picked at a time when the temperature was at its coolest, either during the night or very early in the morning. They were taken into the cellars as quickly as possible and pressed immediately in a pneumatic press. The musts were then left to ferment at low temperatures of 16 to 18°C, retaining the aromatic purity. The wine was aged on its fine lees, in stainless steel vats for approximately six months, giving the wine added depth and character. Bottling took place the following spring.
Rich and enticing aromas of citrus and hawthorn lead to a zesty palate of lemony flavours and a livewire acidity which keeps your taste buds tingling through to an invigorating finish.
