Gérard Bertrand Héritage An 1877 Saint Chinian 2017

Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France, where he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of Languedoc Roussillon. Formerly the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year and Wine Enthusiast's European Winery of the Year, he is known locally as the "King" of the Languedoc. In the Héritage range, Gérard Bertrand highlights the history and the expression of the terroirs of the South of France, by celebrating a date which has marked the history of the appellation. Saint-Chinian is a highly reputed village in the Languedoc region where vines have grown since the Middle Ages. 1877 pays tribute to modern times, when the steam engine and the first Saint-Chinian railway enabled the wines to be transported from the region to capital cities, revolutionising the area. An equal blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre one third of the wine was matured in barrels for nine months, with the remainder aged in vats. This Saint Chinian is a rich, smooth wine offering a complex bouquet of cocoa, laurel, tapenade and black pepper. Notes of black fruits and sweet spice are enveloped in elegant tannins through to a long, velvety finish.
