2019 Gerard Bertrand Hedonisme Corbieres Rose
Usually Grenache and Mourvedre
Wine Enthusiast named his winery Europe’s best in 2011, but Gerard Bertrand began as a rugby player for France and Narbonne. It wasn’t until the early death of his father that he returned to take the reigns of the family operation, Domaine de Villemajou in Boutenac, Corbieres. He soon identified the potential of the Languedoc-Roussillon to produce rich yet bright, modern wines suited to world market trends and from there began acquiring labels and properties across the region. Balancing an organic and increasingly biodynamic viticulture with an evangelical zeal for exporting his Mediterranean ‘Art de Vivre’, Gerard Bertrand has quickly become one of the most important champions of that which epitomises Southern French wine of today: superb quality in quantity.
What The Critics Say
"This is a brilliant, tender, pale Rosé with bluish tints when young, developing towards more orangey, “coral” shades with age. The bouquet offers up aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. This overall impression is completed by floral notes of rose and citrus notes of grapefruit. What sets this Rosé apart is its hints of spices and red pepper. Fresh and full on the palate with long-lasting aromatic notes and great balance. Serve at 12°C during the aperitif or with a fish, chicken or Asian dishes."
