Gerard Bertrand is something of a phenomenon in the Languedoc. Initiated into wine by his father, he worked at the family home of Domaine Villemajou while still at school, before pursuing a successful career in rugby eventually captaining Stade Francaise. At the end of his rugby career, Gerard decided to create a business uniting the best winemakers of the Languedoc in order to give a new dimension to his own winemaking activities. From hand-picked grapes, his wines are marked by a clear link to the terroir by expertise in the winery. The vineyards are located along the Mediterranean coast in southern France and are grown on chalky soil. Low yields and a ruthless approach to quality control means that behind the label lies some of the best value wines in the Languedoc. This approachable rose is a blend of hand-picked Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. Light and fruity, this pairs very well with seafood salads.
A delightful salmon-pink in colour. On the nose, aromas of raspberry and strawberry with notes of citrus fruit. The palate displays great acidity leading to a crisp and fresh finish. Great as an aperitif. Even better with grilled sardines, Provencal fish pasta with anchovies, tomatoes and fennel seeds or a prawn and asparagus tartlet. Highly recommended.
