Gérard Bertrand

2018 Saint Chinian ‘Heritage An 1877’, Gérard Bertrand

Languedoc, FranceVintage: 2018

Another cracking wine from the ‘King of the Languedoc’, Gérard Bertrand.  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.

This 2018 Saint Chinian is part of the ‘Héritage range’ of wines that highlight the history and the expression of the terroirs of the South of France, by celebrating a date that 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 regions to capital cities, revolutionising the area. The vineyard is planted on the sun-kissed slopes of sandstone and schist and benefits from a cool micro-climate. Only the grapes from the plots best suited to producing this type of wine were used in this cuvée. The majority of the grapes were hand-harvested.
