One of the most dynamic and brilliant winemakers from the South of France, where he owns no less than seven estates among the most prestigious terroirs of Languedoc Roussillon, 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.
The Domaine Georges Bertrand was bought by Gerard Bertrand's father, Georges in 1970 and was lovingly shared and cultivated by both father and son for 15 years.The exceptional soils of the domaine encourage the varietal to develop a deep root system which helps greatly in producing wines of fine quality as well as protecting the vine from the excesses of the mediterranean climate such as hydric stress and violent storms Average yield 35h/ha.
During harvest, the fruit is hand picked and undertaken parcel by parcel. The maturity of the fruit by parcel is of the upmost importance to us. The carbonic maceration lasts between 12 and 15 days for the Carignan and the fermentation
process is closely monitored to ensure correct densisty of must and temperature. Once the malolactic fermentation is complete ( each variety is fermented separately ) the wines are assembled and blended and then aged in barrel for 8 months.
