The Heritage 462 Languedoc by Gérard Bertrand appears in the glass in a deep dark red with violet reflections. The bouquet of this red wine seduces with the aromas of red and black berries, which are rounded off by liquorice, gingerbread spice and a hint of garrigue. The palate reflects the nuances of the bouquet and delights with its finesse and gentle tannins. Full-bodied, this vibrant cuvée blends into a long reverberation with the accents of roasted coffee and peppery spices.
Vinification of the Gérard Bertrand Heritage 462 Languedoc
This cuvée is vinified from the Syrah and Grenache varieties. These grapes are harvested by hand at their optimum ripening times. They are then vinified separately in order to preserve the individual characteristics of the grape varieties.
The Syrah grapes are macerated for about 15 days at low temperatures, the Grenache grapes are completely destemmed and macerated over a period of 3 weeks. After pressing and alcoholic fermentation, part of the wine is aged in French barriques for 10 months. Then it is blended with the other part to form a cuvée and bottled after a slight finishing. The Languedoc terroir is then left in the bottle for a few months to refine.
