The Chateau la Sauvageonne is a legendary winemaking estate, where optimal sun exposure, perfect location and an exceptional terroir combine to produce wines of distinctive character. This Cuvee Grand Vin is the fruit of the union between an extraordinary terroir, an original selection of grape varieties and winemaker skill. The vines are planted in the northern reaches of the Herault department, in the shadow of the Causse du Larzac limestone plateau. This region has its own unique micro-climate, with substantial temperature variations: the distance from the sea and proximity of the Causse provide a touch of freshness on summer nights, allowing the grapes to mature slowly and gradually.
Owner of Chateau la Sauvageonne, Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France. A biodynamic pioneer, he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of Languedoc-Roussillon. Formerly the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year and winner of Wine Enthusiast‘s European Winery of the Year, Gérard has been cited as the “King of the Languedoc” among critics.
