ABOUT THIS WINE
It was in 1975, in the vines of the Château de Villemajou at the heart of the Corbières that Gérard Bertrand harvests its first grapes and discovers its passion for wine. He will perfect his apprenticeship during twelve years at the side of his father Georges Bertrand. Very attached to the values of performance and excellence learned on the rugby fields, Gérard Bertrand continues his quest: to reveal the best terroirs of his region and promote them throughout the world. It is in this spirit that he took over the family torch at Domaine de Villemajou after the accidental death of his father in 1987. Five years later, he created the Gérard Bertrand wine company in order to develop a range of wines from the South of France.
91 POINTS - "This dense and generous red opens with notes of sweet smoke, violet, lavender and laurel that complement the blackberry, cassis and cherry core. It's concentrated and robustly fruited, with a smooth texture and round mouthfeel that's framed by spicy tones and velvety tannins that linger through the finish." - Wine Enthusiast Editors' Choice
This cuvee boasts a lovely garnet-red color with brick tints.The bouquet is complex and spicy and develops aromas of cloves and nutmeg. On the palate, this is a supple wine with silky, mineral, licorice-tinged tannins.
